TOWING THE VEHICLE

Print

See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4

Push-starting is not recommended. If equipped with manual locking hubs, set the free-running hubs to the FREE position. Set the gearshift and transfer lever to the NEUTRAL position before towing.

When towing, make sure the the transmission, axles, steering system and powertrain are in good condition. If any unit is damaged, a dolly should be used.

The truck can be towed with the rear wheels on the ground for distances under 15 miles at speeds no greater then 30 mph. If the truck has to be towed over 15 miles or over 30 mph the truck must be dollied or towed with the rear wheels raised and the steering wheel secured so that the front wheels remain in the straight-ahead position. The steering wheel must be clamped with a special clamping device designed for towing service. If the key controlled lock is used damage to the lock and steering column may occur.
