    I have a 1991 4Runner with a 5spd trans and a chain driven transfer case. I have read a lot on this question but am always willing to here what someone with experience has to say. CAN I FLAT TOW THIS CAR?
    I also have a 1983 FJ40 which I have towed since I bought it in 1985, I put the transfer case in neutral and the trans in 4th gear all is good.

    I dont think you can, i think you must have all 4 wheels not spinning, i would see if your manual says anything about it, i know mine says never flat tow, i would assume, most real 4x4 vehicals are the same
