Four-Wheel Drive Vehicles

case is operable, the vehicle may be towed (in the forward direction, with ALL wheels on the ground), IF the transfer case is in NEUTRAL and the transmission is in PARK. Refer to “Recreational Towing” in “Starting And Operating” for further information.





CAUTION!








Front or rear wheel lifts should not be used.



Internal damage to the transmission or transfer



case will occur if a front or rear wheel lift is used

when towing.













Failure to follow these towing methods can cause

severe damage to the transmission and/or transfer



case. Such damage is not covered by the New

Vehicle Limited Warranty.












I'm not sure what the real world implications are of this or if it even matters but like I said, after seeing the way your truck was towed I thought I should mention it.

It was towed about .5 kms

He mentioned to me earlier that the dealer is saying its a ground issue and it maybe because of his HID lights and the wireing he did.. I'm sure he will explain more but I think it's more BS

They called my house and talked to my dad, as i was at school. They want to know what all the aftermarket wiring on the truck becasue they say theres an open ground on it somewhere. The only after market wiring is the HID harness and my grill lights, which are all working fine...Ths truck is kind of starting to scare me alittle bit...
