    you can tow it, all you have to do is disconnect the rear drive shaft from the rear differential. Be sure to mark the flanges before hand so you reconnect them in the same spot, and yes put it in neutral. But it is recommended to be towed on a flat bed if you don't disconnect the drive shaft.

    And use bailing wire to secure the shaft to the frame, and for extra security, put it on lock and chain too.

    With me doing more research on this, I found out they make DS disconnect kits so maybe you dont have to take the entire DS out then put it back in ???

    Oh that's right. There are no lesbians in any other state. And if a woman from CA is seen with another woman that automatically makes her a lesbian. Got it.

    LOL!!! Legal? Which are the illegal ones? :p

    I'm a tomboy, I work a Big Joe lift and at one time I've had my hair cut short. I wear jeans and T-shirts and my nails aren't painted because I work in a warehouse throwing freight and don't want them ripped off. I won't wear earrings to work for the same reason.

    I ride a mountain bike, own a 2 stoke motorcycle and I've raced for SCCA F body classification. I've wrenched on older Trans Ams, Camaros and Mustangs and installed my own air intake on my Lexus. :D

    I carry a purse. I braid my now longer hair. I cook like you wouldn't believe. I clean the bathrooms and hand mop floors. I read stories to small children and comfort them when they are afraid of thunder. I nurse the dogs if they get hurt or sick. I will sometimes even wear a dress! :eek:

    I own high heels as well as Redwing work boots.

    And I live in California, the Bay Area to be exact.

    So what does that make me? ;)

    REMCO drive shaft disconnect towed in PARK does not rack up miles on the OD, no trans pump needed. Works great.
