you can put the truck in neutral and the 4*4 in neutral and tow it. It is not as good a solution as on the trailer, but my granddad did his 4*4 rocky like that for 10 years no real issues. He said the car was a throw away anyhow, so every year it made it, was more money in his pocket.

I've seen a few 1st gens with RV hookup but I'm not sure on a 2nd gen. Also if its possible to put the 4x4 in neutral you shouldnt have to put the tranny in neutral

There is no "N" for the Front diff in a Taco.

Just went out and looked, and you are correct. So with this I would not advise towing this without it being on a trailer.

Only way you SHOULD do it without a trailer is to drop the driveshafts.
Don't do it any other way.

Just cuz it doesnt have a neutral 4x4 option doesnt mean it cant be towed. My mom has an 07 Explorer 4x4. Theres a kit made by ford called the "Neutral Tow Kit" which inables it to be towed by an RV. Maybe there's somethin like this for tacos?

My buddy has it on his 4wd Exploder that he bought from his grandma. She used to tow it behind a RV. I have not seen such a kit for Tacomas.

Well you can also flip it upside down and tow it on skateboards. You still shouldn't.

My moms doesnt have it so we just bought a Jeep
I think it would be a good investment on Toyotas part to make something of the like

I know what you meant. Go to the dealer and ask for the FJ kit. They will take your Taco and pancake it in the car smasher in the back. Then they will sell you a FJ.
