TOAD question 1984 4Runner

I am considering buying a classic, 1984 Toyota 4 Runner as my TOAD; love classic UTE's like these.
The model I am looking to buy is a manual with a manual Transfer Case. Is there anyone that is doing this now?
It seems to me to have both the tranny and the X-fer case in neutral?
Thanks in Advance.

Usually, it is transfer case in neutral, and tranny in gear/park; I leave my manual in 3rd. The reason for this is to keep the input side of the xfer case/output side of the tranny from spinning by fluid induced rotational forces from the spinning output side of the xfer case. Most transmissions, manual and automatic, get their lubrication from their spinning input side. Many xfer cases get their lube from the spinning output.

Either way, read and follow your specific vehicle owners' manual.

Retired Toyota Master Tech here, no problem towing your 4Runner m/t. Transfer case in N, trans in 3rd gear is typical procedure, although you can leave trans in N too. Happy Trails
