Yes....I don't drop the shaft on my 40, but others do.
Some will say that the chance for breakage and cost to repair is too great for the time it would take to remove four bolts. You will hear horror stories about what happened to others that did not remove the drive shaft and how you are taking too great of a chance by not removing it.
With that said, I've been towing vehicles this way for years and have yet to run into trouble.
Don't do it. You'll wreck them both. Seriously.I have a Tacoma pick-up, also 4WD.
You'll get used to that.Eddy, you are probably right...
None taken, I have only "heard" of it happening myself.No direspect Mace, but I have never heard of a TC or tranny bouncing into gear, although I have heard several stories about them bouncing out of gear. That doesn't mean it hasn't or won't happen, but it would be highly unlikely.
