Towing Ford Explorer Sport Trac 2WD (REMCO)
Currently have a 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, 2WD (not 4WD), V6 engine, automatic, etc..
Would like to tow this vehicle 4-wheels down behind an 04 Journey MH. I do know it's not recommended without modifications. I'm told by a reputable truck/MH shop that using a REMCO drive shaft disconnect product, think now made by Southwest Driveline in Yuma, AZ, this is the way to go with no problem towing.
Talked to my Ford dealer service manager about this and says the truck is not rated for towing and it's a bad idea but he has seen these come in for service with no apparent problems.
Reading I've been doing somewhat discourages this but the vendor says no problems with this product and no other major modifications are needed and it's done all the time for years. Claims continue that no tranny pump is needed since the tranny doesn't turn. Rear end lubes with rear wheels turning using splash oil on the gears.
My question is I would like to hear from others that have either the 2010 Ford Sport Trac or similar year and what their experience has been with this product.
