Are all toads the same?

Can someone tell me why so many think all toads are the same? Set up is in your owners manual and are not the same for all models and years of even the same car. Same goes for lights and for aux brake set up.

Nope - can't tell you why it's that way, if, in fact, it is. I certainly never thought that, which explains why we traded a perfectly-good Scion for a 2017 Wranger when we decided it was time for us to start towing.

EVEN if you use a full auto trailer (all 4 wheels on trailer) they are not the same. Do not know of anyone who thinks they are..
Toweds come in basically the following types:L
Can be towed 4 down
Can be towed 4 down AFTER MODIFICATION
Can be Towed 4 down with special precautions/procedures
Can not be towede 4 down but (Front wheel Drive) Dan be dolly towed
(Rear wheel can also be dolly towed but special procedures needed)
Can be trailered only
Can be trailered but again special procedure needed.

YUP. some cars even trailering them takes special actions (Flip a switch) .
Home is where I park it!
