Question Toyota Tundra

I have a 2001 Toyota Tundra, 2 wheel drive, automatic. Is this towable 4 wheels down?

Call Toyota...Remco is not a "disinterested" party.

Only with a driveshaft disconnect device. NO Toyota automatic transmission vehicle is towable 4 down without modifications.

While Remco is not exactly disinterested, neither is Toyota. Toyota don't want to risk any warranty claims, and Remco is interested in selling towing gear. Remco Towing, however, has a sterling reputation for never recommending anything you don't actually need. Remco has new owners now, but so far they have maintained the original owners ethics.

My 2004 is a 4x4, but lacks a neutral position on the transfer case, so it requires the disconnect. I had the dealer install it when I bought it. It has worked perfectly for almost 7 years.

Don't know about Toyota, but if you call Honda, they will tell you what is in the owner's manual...which is the information you need. My CRV has a section entitled "Towing Behind a MH."

Toyota has only one answer for towing behind a motorhome: "don't do it and your warranty is void if you do". You won't get any constructive help there.

A 2001 2WD Tundra can be safely towed with the addition of a drive shaft disconnect. Not a cheap mod, but it works and can be moved to another vehicle when you change cars (but there will be additional cost to customize the disconnect for the new vehicle drive shaft).
