Truck towing 4wd.

I have a 2011 Chevy Colorado. Some articles say, yes you can tow 4wd. Others say NO, not without removing the drive shaft. Anyone have the correct answer?

If it doesn't work, read the book.

If it still doesn't work, follow it. Words from my high school teacher. Smart man he was.

If you would really like to tow it, how about a driveshaft disconnect?

Well, I'm 78, make the most of what you have left, I am. Looking forward to another OR-WV and back trip next summer, including places in between. I know there is a time coming when we won't be able to do this, but until it is forced upon me I plan to continue.

There are many others older than I am that are still going strong. IMHO, you are not old until you decide you are.

I think that if you have a control to put the transmission on neutral you can do 4 down. That is the way in other 4W trucks.

Truck towing 4wd.

Refer to page 10-89 of your owners manual. You stated in your original question you have a 4wd. If thatís correct then yes you can tow 4 down. Follow the directions to put your transfer case in neutral and your good to go.

I think by 4wd he meant "4 wheels down". Please correct me if I'm wrong.
