I posted this in the Cherokee Forum by mistake, so here it is in the proper forum.
I recently acquired a well kept 1992 Jeep Comanche pick-up truck. It is a short bed, 2 wheel rear drive with a 5 speed manual transmission. It has the 4.0 liter, 6 cylinder engine. I would like to tow it with all 4 wheels on the ground behind my class A motorhome.
I do not know anyone that has the same vehicle, and all the opinionated experts on various web sites continue to contradict each other over whether this vehicle can be flat towed. Even some of the special interest Jeep user groups contradict each other. Some say yes, some say use a dolly, some say trailer, some say disconnect the drive line, etc.
I can't believe that this is even a question with these 20 year old manual transmission, 2 wheel drive Comanche (1986-1992) / Cherokee (1984-2001) / Wagoneers (1984-1990).
Common sense would indicate that as long as the manual transmission is placed in neutral, and the ignition position is set to allow the steering wheel to turn freely, I should be good to go - as long as I have a good base plate, tow bar, safety cables/chains, and lights.
Even the 1986 is a little confusing. States you can tow it 4 down in neutral, but stop at 200 miles and run it in 2nd gear (I assume with clutch in), then resume towing in "high gear", even though the first 200 miles were in neutral???
