Suzuki Samurai/Sidekick/Tracker 1986-1998 Repair Guide

General Information


Your Suzuki vehicle may be towed by another vehicle so long as you take into consideration various characteristics of your particular vehicle, such as whether it is 2-wheel drive (2WD) or 4-wheel drive (4WD), and, if it is a 4WD vehicle, whether it is equipped with manual or automatic free-wheeling hubs.

There are four different methods for towing Suzuki vehicles based upon the aforementioned vehicle characteristics; the methods are as follows:

4WD vehicle with manual hubs-method A or method B
4WD vehicle with automatic hubs-method B
2WD vehicle-method C

Whenever towing your vehicle, regardless of the method used, be sure to ALWAYS use the proper equipment designed for recreational vehicle towing, and that the towing speed never exceeds 55 mph (88 km/h).

Always utilize safety chains to secure the vehicle being towed in the event of towing component damage or breakage. The safety chains will help avoid causing a dangerous vehicle accident.
