towing a land rover

Can you tow a 2004 Land Rover- with 4 wheels down, if its an all wheel drive, or does anyone know if they made a regular 4 wheel drive, so you could kick it out of gear like a GMC?

I have understood that the Land Rover-down with 4 wheels, can be towed only about 50 or 60 miles. then you have to run the engine for a few minutes to follow.
I think the only Rover that can be towed without problem is the Range Rover.

I personally do not like that kind of modifications to a vehicle, I'd be afraid to use them and risk breaking the transmission if they stop working for some reason.

The really old, original Land Rover design, which I think made it from its origin in the late 1940s into the current century as the "Defender" could be disconnected. All other models introduced after about 1960 were full time all-wheel drive.

I'm surpised that anyone thinks the Range Rover can be flat towed. Never having been anywhere close to affording one, I never looked into it.

Our 2012 Range rover can not be towed 4 down. Most all wheel drive vehicles can not be flat towed.

It is my understanding the only RR that can be towed 4 down is the 05 or 06...not sure which one but I think it is the one with the BMW power plant.

I do not know how reliable the publication "Dinghy-Guide" of MotorHome Magazine is.
But they show that RR 2002, 2003 and 2005 can be towed without problems with all four wheels on the ground.

True, I can not either buy a new one, but I am seriously considering a used model in reasonable condition.
Maybe after I sell my Georgetown.

Finally I found the publication "Dinghy-Guide" from 2004 and they say the 2004 RR can be towed without problems with all four wheels on the ground.

Lloyd21 "I don"t think anything is real concreate enough for me plop down 12g for a used discovery?, what do you think?

I do not know too much about this vehicle, but I love the way that it drive on all kinds of terrain.
I like to have one if it could be towed without problems.
What year is the one you mention below $12k?
