I have to tow my beloved Tacoma across the country (2400km).
I will be using a dolly trailer, so the rear wheels will be on the ground. I know this is not the best situation, but U-haul doesn't have a vehicle trailer that will fit the Tacoma.
So I'm left with removing the driveshaft, and I've never done this before. I've looked on the internet and am just looking for assurance that it's ok to do this.
I'm capable with tools but I'm a carpenter not a mechanic - usually the extent of it for me is changing the oil.
So a few questions:
1. Can/ should I just remove one driveshaft?
2. Should I replace u-joints while I'm at it?
3. Will it be fairly easy to do in my driveway with a basic set of sockets and wrenches?
Any other advice or things I should think about?
Thanks in advance.
