Re: Flat towing a CJ7
My origional (81 year model) factory manual says to tow it with the d300 in 2 hi and the manual transmission in neutral. And it says to run the motor every 200 miles. I think it's supposed to be run with the t-case in neutral and the tranny in gear. Running the motor with the tranny in neutral won't do you any good. I don't see why you even need to run the motor at all if you keep the t-case in 2-high. That's exactly the same thing as driving it. I've towed mine over 2000 miles and have had no problems. If you have an auto, you get to disconnect the drive shaft.
tippy, how do you run the motor with the t-case in gear? Do you unhook from the tow vehicle?
