Re: Mariner Towing Question
Four wheel drive vehicles can be flat towed with all wheels on the ground only if the transfer case can be put into 'neutral'. Some full time single speed transfer cases, don't have this feature and will require all wheels to be on a trailer. Irregardless of the model year, if there is no neutral setting for the transfer case it's flat tow only. If neutral does exist, then you can easily put the vehicle in park and move the transfer case to neutral. The vehicle should roll on its own without worry about burning up the transmission.
The owners manual should inform you about flat towing and if it's allowed with the AWD (4x4) drive system.
