Towing my taco, help please

A friend brought up a good question. Im moving in 2 weeks and am towing my Taco behind my Uhaul truck. We reserved a dolly. I have read the manual but some parts are a little unclear. Would it be best to just get all 4 wheels off the ground or can i tow it with two wheels up and two on the ground. Thanks in advance!!

I would definitely go four wheels up. Your truck is a big investment its still worth a fair amount of money. If you notice no one tows nice cars with dollies regardless of their drive system. Also the trailers cost about $10 more per day than the dollies, I would just go for it to protect your truck from wear and damage. Furthermore I think the trailers are easier to tow than the dollies, especially if you've never towed anything before (and especially towing a bigger vehicle like a tacoma)

Trailer the automatic or take the rear drive shaft out with a dolly.

it is HIGHLY recommended by most and even pointed out in the owners manual to tow on a flatbed.
