According to my owners manual you can't tow a 2 wheel drive 4 wheels down...see here: Look at pg 4-43

Another GM Service Bulletin I had on dinghy towing....see pg 3....sorry but bad news for your 2wd Tracker :( looks like the only way you can tow it is with the rear wheels on a dolly....

Towing Trackers

The Chevy Tracker (yours) and Suzuki SideKick 4x4 auto and manual trans have a divorced transfer case. Transfer case in neutral disconnects the drive train from the engine. I have towed both auto and manuel 4 down for thousands of miles with no issues. If you have locking hubs, turn the open.
The old Suzuki Samurias and manual 5 speed Tracker have basically the same mechanicals. The automatics just need to be ran thru the gears for a minute every 250 miles to oil the gears. Go to zukiworld.com for EVERYTHING Suzuki, Geo or Chevy Tracker. You can pm me if questions....Gary

Sorry...I missed the 2 wheel drive part. HOWEVER there is a kit to add locking hubs to the rear wheels of your Tracker. Again zukiworld.com for all the facts.
