Are there any small pick-up trucks with standard transmissions that can be towed four down without installing a drive shaft disconnet. I tow a four wheel drive Jimmy with an automatic transmission that has neutral and can be towed four down without modifying the drive components. Need away to transport my motorcycle south in the winter and still have a car or truck.

You can go to http://www.towingworld.com/DinghyGuide06.pdf for a list of 06 models. If you are looking for a little older model I toad a 95 Chevy Blazer with 5 speed manual trans all of the place and never had a problem. I believe that Ford and Toyota have not been towable until very recently. Good luck and if you have a specific truck you have in mind, bring it to our attention and I am sure someone on here can advise to its towableness.

Remco can give you an answer once you know which truck you are interested in.
The Ford Ranger STRAIGHT DRIVE can be towed four wheel down from about year 96 up. I can not remember, but I asked Remco before buying. Mine is an 03 and towes fine.
I wanted a Cheverolet and asked the dealer who said yes a straight drive could be towed. Remco said no, I would have to add a transmission pump.
My next purchase will be an automatic even if I have to put a drive shaft disconnect.
Pick out your truck and give Remco a call before buying would be my advice.
