Interesting as all the other 4X4s I know of that are flat towable call for putting the transfer case in neutral. I tow my Jeep with the auto transmission in park and the transfer case in neutral per the manual.

I think the driveline disconnect instructions say to place the FJ in Park. I have a disconnect, just have not installed it yet.

I have removed the driveshaft many times - it just takes a few minutes. Four bolts and pull the slip-joint apart. Fine if we stay somewhere for a few weeks. A pain if we are someplace different every day.

An FJ is not a Jeep - different anatomy.

I loved my FJ but too hard to tow. Swapped it for a Jeep. I don't love my Jeep :-(

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I'm not a Jeep guy so can't comment on that. Noticed you are new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Yes, the instructions for a Superior Driveline Driveshaft Coupler specifies that the automatic transmission should be in park.
