Toad Vehicle

Towing since 2001. Started out with a trans pump but didn't like that as the high pressure kept blowing the trans cooling lines. In '03 we went to a dolly towing a front wheel drive VW. After acquiring a diesel Jeep Liberty in late '05 and towing that since I wouldn't change to any other model. Just hook up the tow bar, follow the instructions in the owners' manual to put the 4wd in neutral and go. We've towed it east to west from FL to Denver three times, as well as north to south on the east coast several times. Over 27,000 miles without a problem.
Jeep is the brand for us.

Ok. I think the vote is in.

JEEP seems to be the toad of choice even if there are a bunch of other toads that do just fine.

I'm looking for a jeep now

Towed 07 Liberty with M&G Air Brake for several years. Fine unit. Wanted more room so now we tow a Tahoe 4 X. M&G Air Brake. Heavier but tows very well. Dogs and Golf Clubs and golf carts fit better.

For those of you towing a late model Jeep Liberty, what transmission do you have? The standard Command-Trac or the optional Selec-Trac?

Would like to tow a small PU. Anybody know one that can be towed 4 down other than standard trans ?
Presently tow a 1999 Saturn with Blue Ox tow bar & D-Brake system.

2009 Saturn Vue. Like it because it's OK to tow an automatic. And with a fuse switch no miles accrue while towing.

Honda CR-V

we normally don't tow with our class A but are now considering purchasing a left over 2011 Honda CR-V LX with 4WD for our toad. is it correct that no modifications or purchases need to be made to the vehicle itself other than the tow bar and necessary light connections ? what is the procedure for traveling.. what position is the key in while traveling ? how is the steering wheel unlocked ? is the transmission in neutral while traveling ? do you have to pull any fuses. can anyone provide a procedure or checklist that they use. thanx Len

The instructions are in the owners manual. It is simple. You crank the engine. go through the gears to drive and go from drive to neutral. Turn the key back to acc. position. The rest is normal stuff. all acc. turned off (radio,A/C,blower,etc.) Make sure the emergency brake is off. No fuses to pull.
