Default Towing Question '87 4WD Samurai

Can you flat tow an '87 4WD Samurai?

How does the tranny, transfer case need to be set to?

short distances (less than a tank full of gas) you can put tcase in neutral and trans in 2nd gear.

you can tow longer this way by starting the engine every time you gas up and letting the clutch out (leaving tranny in 2nd and tcase in neutral) - but I don't trust this. perhaps somebody with a lot of miles experience doing this can advise. I prefer the following....

longer tows.... you should disconnect the driveline at the rear axle and tie it up to the frame.

or install a driveline disconnect if you dont want to get dirty
Roadless Gear. Rear Driveline Disconnect for Samurai

EDIT: cheaper and easier to install....
