We have been towing a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Automatic since 2004 without any issues. Easy to hook up and go.

Here is another thread that I stared on the long term effect of towing 4 wheels down. The consensus is that there should be no adverse effect with a vehicle that can be towed and with the right tow bar set-up. A by product of this thread is the identification of a lot of tow vehicles (I hate the term Toad") that are being towed 4 wheel down. This might be of help to you.

Roy Robinson RV website list by make, model and year what can be towed and a breif description of what "hoops" you have to jump through to tow it. I selected a 2012 Jeep Liberty 4wd. You put the drive train in neutral, put the transmission in park, take out the key lock the doors and go. No fuses to pull, no limit to speed or distances. This paticular Jeep does not lock the sterring column when you remove the key.

"tow vehicle" is what you tow a TT or fifth wheel with.

The REMCO site is not the definitive source. It is incomplete. The definitive source is usually the vehicle's owners manual.

The REMCO site is not the definitive source. It is incomplete. The definitive source is usually the vehicle's owners manual.
Except when something changes mid year and the manual does not get updated. Chevy Cruze's comes to mind.

This is turning into a circular argument.

We tow a 2012 Ford Explorer with no problems. It's also a great vehicle to drive and use when we get where we are going, and the profits and taxes it generated stay in North America.
