My Explorer's Owners' Manual specifically tell how to "recreationally" tow it. I wouldn't expect to have troubles with warranty since it is explicitly in the manual.

We have a dollie so we can tow so we can tow any of our jeeps without needing to purchase tow bar base plates for each one. If we buy another jeep we can just drive it on, no worries.

I know you can't back up with either towing method.....Please help me decide....Thanks. OH....I am towing with a 2007 400 Cat DP Country Coach Tribute 260....Thanks

Most Jeeps can't be towed on a dolly or you have to remove the rear driveshaft.

What if you put on dolly; then go through 4 down procedure?

I stopped into Jeep service last night and asked that question. They told me it is no problem as lone as it is not all time 4WD, just be sure to follow the procedure for towing it 4down.
