Flat Towing a 93 GEO Tracker 4WD

I would like to flat tow my 93 GEO Tracker 4WD behind a motor home I just acquired. Has anybody done this, if so how did you attach the tow bar to the Tracker. Did you have to use commerical base plates? Did you make up some kind of support that you attached to the frame and then attach the tow bar to it? I'm currently looking at a REESE Universal towbar. It requires the two brackets that mount onto the vehicle to be 24" on center. Any and all help will be appreciated. If it turns out that the bar and any other modifications become high priced, I may just look into a tow dolly.

Thanks in advance for any and all help and suggestions.
Bill

Re: Flat Towing a 93 GEO Tracker 4WD

best to read the owner's manual cover to cover on this subject. if i remember correctly, you cannot do this with the automatic hubs, only the manual hubs, and there are specific instructions on where to place the tranny shifter and the tcase shifter. i think it's for oil circulation. most of the folks who read this board know a whole lot more about it than i do. oh, and not with an auto tranny either, i don't think............

Re: Flat Towing a 93 GEO Tracker 4WD

I see Trackers being flat-towed behind motor homes all the time, so it's do-able: question is exactly what is the right way to do it. I would recommend a tow bar Specifically designed for your Tracker, if you go that route. A tow dolly + removing the rear drive shaft would definetely work, also.

If I end up with a dolly, which if I can find one cheap enough will be how I go, I plan on placing the rear wheels on the dolly and the front on the ground. I have the manual trans and manual hubs. So with them set to free, I should be home free, sorry for the pun.
