Recreational Towing — Two-Wheel Drive Models

Recreational towing is allowed ONLY if the rear wheels are OFF the ground. This may be accomplished using a tow dolly or vehicle trailer. If using a tow dolly, follow this procedure:

1. Properly secure the dolly to the tow vehicle, following the dolly manufacturer’s instructions.

2. Drive the rear wheels onto the tow dolly.

3. Firmly set the parking brake. Place the transmission in PARK.

4. Properly secure the rear wheels to the dolly, following the dolly manufacturer’s instructions.

5. Remove the ignition key.

6. Install a suitable clamping device, designed for towing, to secure the front wheels in the straight position.

Flat towing (with all four wheels on the ground) is allowed ONLY if the driveshaft is removed. Towing with the rear wheels on the ground while the driveshaft is connected will result in severe transmission damage.

WARNING!
If the driveshaft is removed, the vehicle can roll even if the transmission is in PARK, which could cause serious injury or death.

The parking brake must be firmly engaged and the wheels chocked during driveshaft removal and installation.

The parking brake must remain engaged unless the vehicle is securely and properly connected to the tow vehicle, or the driveshaft is completely reinstalled. See your authorized dealer for proper driveshaft removal and reinstallation procedures, including flange orientation/alignment, use of thread-locking compound, proper bolt torque specifications, etc.

CAUTION!
Towing with the rear wheels on the ground (while the driveshaft is connected) will cause severe transmission damage. Damage from improper towing is not covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
