According to Motorhome Magazine Dinghy Towing Guide, Ford doesn't approve flat towing the electronic transfer case version of the 4WD system on the F150. And there is no neutral tow kit like there is for the Explorer 4WD.
The manual transfer case 4wd is towable.

Gary, I'm not familiar with the Ford products. Does the electronic transfer case not allow it to be placed into a neutral condition? Or can it be put in neutral and some other factor precludes it from being flat towed.
Roger, My understanding of the Ford Electronic Transfer case in the Explorer is that there is no neutral position on the push buttons. You have to have a neutral tow kit installed to acheive neutral on the transfer case. Evidently the F150 Electronic Transfer case does not work the same way as Ford doesw not offer a neutral tow kit and only recommends that the manual transfer case be towed 4 down with the shifter in neutral.
