2010 GMC Yukon AWD as a Toad

Can this be done? and how much $$$$

My owners manual says no.

I'm a little bummed because I thought that if it was AWD it would be able too. My last truck was a 2005 GMC truck 4WD and had a "netural" button that allowed it to be towed with all 4 tires on the ground.

Any help out there???

If the owners manual states it's not towable, then Remco Towing may be able to help.

AWD is not the same as 4WD, especially since there is no switch or lever to put it in Neutral. You should have bought a GMC Acadia - it is towable in either 2WD or AWD versions and is almost the same size inside as the Yukon.

According to Remco Towing, if your 2010 Yukon AWD has the 6 speed auto, it is trailerable only. The older Yukon AWDs had a 4 speed auto and a Remco lube pump could be used with that.

it is a 6 speed auto.

So when you mean trailer it does that mean 2 wheels on the ground or 4 wheels. I would really like to do 4 wheels on the ground.

That would be 4 wheels off the ground on a trailer! That just does give you many options. You would take a BIG hit trading it in.

All 4 wheels need to be off the ground and some 4WD vehicles need all 4 wheels on or off the ground. No tow dollies because of the transfer case.

By "trailerable only" I meant all 4 wheels on a trailer. Not a tow dolly - an actual car hauler trailer. There is no "fix' for your Yukon AWD - it is the trailer or leave it home.
