Flat tow CJ-7 across 11 states
Very late for this request but I'm heading to Rhode Island this weekend to pickup a '77 CJ-7 and towing it back to Florida. I've been reading the opinions on flat towing & have distilled it down to:
Remove the rear driveshaft at the rear diff,
Strap it to the Jeep's underside,
Put tranny & transfer case in neutral,
Bungie the steering wheel to help it return,
Haul it behind a BIG truck.[/list]I'll be dragging it back with a '93 F350 7.3L diesel 4x4 crewcab. The tow bar should be level from the truck rear bumper to the Jeep front bumper. I've got a 5000# bumper hitch & Reese 5000# towbar.
I know, I probably could have done this another way, but this is the only option now. Any feedback on this from you experts at this would be greatly appreciated.
