Hi Swannee,

I was just wondering if you have a jeep why use the dollie?

Why not just tow 4 down?

We towed our 1995 Jeep Rio Grand 4down behind our 30' Class-C from 1995-2000 with no problems!

Hi Swannaee,

Better check your owners manual. I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ and my owners manual says not to use a dolly or it will ruin the transfer case.

Like to appologize for the long reply time. Jeep is set up for off road and daily driver as well. Has a 4'lift and all the goodies associated with off-roading. Have a full floating axel in the rear but not the front that is cost prohibitive lot cheaper to go woth the dollie. thanks for your input I depend on your know how and comments.

Thanks for the reply, I installed a full floating axel in rear so nothing spins but the wheels. The front on the other hand, the locking hub assembly pushes the price of a tow dolly and I am tired of working on the Jeep. With the transfer case/ transmission in neutral flat tow, or dolly tow should be ok. Floating rear axel takes doubt out of equation and dolly up front will never see action under tow.
