Towing a 2013 Toyota Tacoma

I have a 13 Tacoma 4wd, 5-speed auto. I want to use it as my dinghy. Looking at Remco's site, the driveline disconnect IS NOT required. They indicate that only a transmission pump is needed. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge on this subject? Thank you

Not direct knowledge in actually towing a tacoma, but I had to make the same decision as you.
I had a '12 Tacoma 4WD and just traded it for a 12 Wrangler Unlimited. Owner's Manual stated I couldn't tow the Tacoma with wheels down and by the time I added a drivetrain disconnect and the pump... it wasn't worth it to me to void the warranty and take the risk. Figured I should do it right the first time. (Who says those lessons my dad taught me didn't stick!)
And I really didn't want to pull and have to stow a trailer Every thing I researched recommended against only adding the pump.

You don't need to do the disconnect and the pump. Just one or the other. I had a disconnect on mine and the dealer never questioned any warranty work.
