2011 Ford F150 Raptor - Flat Towing???

Has anyone figured out how to flat tow their 2011 Ford F150 or F150 Raptor? I know in 2012 Ford made them easy to flat tow this truck. It's a simple procedure with the ignition key and the 4x4 switch that electronically puts the transfer case into neutral. I am NOT so lucky... I got the 2011...

I realize I can remove the rear driveshaft and/or put a Remco Driveshaft Disconnect system on it BUT the next problem is the vacuum operated front hubs and i've heard RUMORS that if you don't use a vacuum pump or some sort of device to hold vacuum on the front hubs while towing that they will engage when the vacuum is not present and DAMAGE will occur. PLEASE can someone explain why and if there are any SOLID SOLUTIONS to keep the front hubs from locking while towing.

I ONLY would like to tow this vehicle to a few places - Like Baja and other Off Road Destinations. I have an old Jeep JK I use to tow under normal trips!

Thanks you everyone for reading this... Any constructive thoughts would be greatly appreciated...

The owners manual for the vehicle usually gives info on towing and towability...If not, it is still a fairly new vehicle...ask FORD...local dealer, etc.

thats where i would start
Rexhall Aerbus XL 2900

Probably never going to have a chance to "drive" a Boeing, so I bought an Aerbus!
