drive shaft modification?

I ran across a vender at the Houston RV show that is touting that he modifies drive shafts so that front wheel drive cars with automatic transmissions can be towed 4 wheels down. I just bought my 2011 Toyota Venza and would sure hate to part with it, but don't want to use a tow dolly. Can anyone comment on drive shaft disconnect modification?

Which disconnect manufacturer?
I have been using one since 1993 with no problems, made by Remco.

I had it done on my 96 Ford Explorer with no issues. Lots of folks have done it and most of what I read indicates satisfaction. Remco used to be the company providing the disconnect device but I think they sold out to another company. Google it.

David at Drive Shaft King (800-442-6329). They are located in Dallas...I think.

Front drive cars are usually towed by using a transmission lube pump rather than a drive disconnect. Remco Towing makes those, but does not yet have one for the Venza. Sounds like the disconnect from Drive Shaft King may be your only method (assuming they actually make one for the Venza).
