The 4Runner tracks very well behind the motorhome , the tires don't show abnormal wear and solo is a perfect ride. The DSC has been installed on a custom built drive shaft. I tow the 4Runner with the Transfer Case in 2H, transmission in Park and steering unlocked. If you need additional info, don't hesitate to contact me.Gaetan
According to the REMCO site the 4Runner and FJ have the same transmission and transfer case. How do you keep the ignition unlocked? On the FJ the key can be turned to the off position and must be removed about half way before the steering wheel locks.

I'm going with the modifications on my FJ...and hoping that it comes out great and that it works as I hope.

I simply turn the ignition switch to the accessory position and leave the key in the switch.
The Toyota dealer cut me a key ($3.00) without the chip which I use to unlock the steering for towing.
I have no regret whatsoever with getting the Remco DSC and I am very happy with it as you will be.
