A vehicle equipped with SAE approved sling-type towing equipment can be used to tow all short-bed 2WD vehicles covered by this manual. When towing 4WD vehicles and long-bed vehicles, Chrysler Corporation recommends the use of a flatbed-type transportation vehicle. If one is not available, a wheel-lift, sling-type device can be used-provided ALL the wheels are lifted off the ground using tow dollies. The flatbed, if used, should have an approach ramp angle not exceeding 15 degrees.
Towing With Front End Lifted
If a 2WD vehicle cannot be towed with the rear wheels lifted, it can be towed with the front wheels lifted with the transmission in NEUTRAL.
Towing With Rear End Lifted
This is the preferable method for towing a 2WD vehicle, but not required. Towing 2WD vehicles with the rear end lifted is permissible. To do so, unlock the steering column and secure the steering wheel in a straight-ahead position with a clamp device designed for towing. Also verify that the steering components are in good condition.
