Flat towing YJ with Aussie in Front
I have a 1991 YJ with a Detroit locker in the rear and an Aussie in the front. The front has a cable that replaces the vacuum actuator for the axle.
I have seen several threads concerning flat towing with the Aussie in the front and the choices seem to be disconnecting the front shaft, or replacing a part in the transfer case to allow true neutral.
Will the cable actuator rather than the vacuum actuator make any difference when flat towing the Jeep?
Disconnecting the front driveshaft is no big deal, and tearing into the transfer case is over my head so that makes my choice easy if the cable-vs-vacuum actuator does not make any difference.
I should have done more research before buying the Jeep since I knew I would be flat towing behind an RV when I bought it. I had no idea at the time that a locker would matter, or that the YJ transfer case did not have true neutral.
I bought a great Jeep that I can't tow without taking it apart.
