Unhook the tow bar, pull the plates, remove your personal contents. Wait a few days then report it stolen. Start shopping for a new Jeep.
100% Correct. Which is why if you’ve ever pull started a manual or bump started one coasting down hill you have it the highest gear not ! The lowest gear because the tires skid and try and stop you.You have that exactly backwards, low range first gear gives the tires minimum mechanical advantage, if the road surface was wet theres a good chance they wouldn’t have turned at all.
I have never flat towed but I would have assumed in a manual to leave it out of gear and just in neutral. Learn something everyday on this forum.Man, I’ve never even flat towed my jeep and I know- transfer case in neutral, jeep in 5th or 6th gear (manual transmission). Not that I have to worry about it because I don’t flat tow.
I would imagine that this person tried to put it in neutral from 4-Lo and didn’t complete the transfer, or tried to put it in neutral from 4-Hi and went too far... or they just forgot altogether? Who knows. Expensive mistake.
Glad to see I wasn't the only one that did the math.That video is pretty awesome.
I’m coming up with 56.5krpm at the engine at 70 mph for stock rubicon. Very impressive.
Maybe I missed something? 33 tire is 630 revs per mile = 735 rpm x 77 crawl ratio?
My 2 door fits on a tow dolly...not sure why it's 'not allowed' when there are 2 ways to disconnect the axle.I flat towed my JK and now my JLUM. Recently we took the Mirimar to Galveston and back with our Jeep toad. Even now after doing it many times over many years I am still fearful enough about OP situation that I go over the flat tow setup several times. I actually have a card to create a checklist for our new RV as we did for the last few.
Note: you cannot backup a toad while connected to your tow bar setup. Unless you go perfectly straight. Luckily my Falcon2 setup is easy to connect/disconnect w Mopar flat tow harness.
