Towing 2010 Ford Sport Trac 4x4

Just had the Ford dealership order the neutral tow package for my Sport Trac.

Anyone else towing one? Anything special I need to know?

The boss's father is towing one and loves it. Just make sure you verify that it is in neutral tow mode or the transmission will melt down. But if I remember correctly, the transmission must be in park so it would be pretty obvious.

Thanks for the reply.

Hooked it up today for the first time and dropped the coach off for service.

Very nice not having to wait until the wife was ready to follow me down and pick me up at the CAT shop.

Towed like a dream.

Had the Ford garage install the Neutral Two Module. Had the RV shop install the Roadmaster tow plates, the Roadmaster Falcon AT tow bar and the SMI Air Force One braking system.

Pleased with how easy it is to connect and disconnect, around 3 minutes each. Should get a bit quicker with more use/practice.

Other than the cost I am very happy with the way it turned out.

Interesting!!!!

Is is like the Southwest Drivelines or Drive Shaft King conversions other have used?

If not, what is it?

Any idea if it can be installed in/on older 4x4 F150 (2009 - 2005)?

the neutral tow kit for the Explorer and Sport Trac 2002-2010 only (I believe) is a wiring harness and programming for the factory 4x4 module to allow for the transfer case to be shifted into neutral into towing. F150s do not have this ability with the exception of manual transfer cases and the newer 2012 and up.

That is correct
