    Automatic transmission equipped vehicles cannot be flat towed. The drive wheels (front wheels in a FWD vehicle; or rear wheels in a RWD vehicle) would have to be raised up on a dolly. Alternatively, on a RWD vehicle, the driveshaft can be disconnected to enable flat towing. But this cannot be done on 4 wheel drive vehicles.

    If your truck is a 4 wheel drive it could be towed with the transfer case in neutral.But you had best check with toyota.Not all transfer cases are set up to do this.
