When you tow that Tundra the drive shaft cannot turn. If you tow it with the rear wheels on the ground and the driveshaft turning it will burn up the transmission, therefor you need a driveshaft disconnect device.

A drive shaft disconnect is put in between the transmission and rear end to disconnect the transmission if it is Automatic so you do not burn the transmission up because automatic transmission are lube while the engine is running. If it is a manual transmission you are ok. And if you let the engine run while you are pulling the tow vehicle it adds mileage to the tow.
