All, considering an EZ Tow dolly to haul my Roxor.

Anything I should be aware of with the transmission / transfer case?

Thanks for the help, Keith

I would consider disconnecting the drive shaft.

Looking to buy
Why don't you tow the Roxor backwards? Now all you have to do is place your lockouts to FREE, and secure your steering wheel, and go. It's so much easier than dropping drive shafts and worrying about other things when it comes to towing.

Thanks and yes that's an option!

Just as long as you can truly secure the steering and the dolly has enough ability to pivot in turns.

Same applies to the roxor.
I do not know what the process would be for the automatic transmission?
Jeep Wrangler Flat Towing: The Jeep Wrangler is one of the few vehicles built specifically to be flat towed and it does terrific in that role. Flat towing a TJ Jeep Wrangler is fairly simple, but it’s critical that you have everything set up properly before you roll. Note that the transfer case must be shifted into Neutral (N) and that the transmission MUST be placed in gear so that the transmission can be lubricated while the Jeep is being towed (your transmission will burn up if you don’t). According to the owner’s manual, here are the steps for flat towing a TJ Jeep Wrangler with a manual transmission:

  1. Depress the brake pedal
  2. Depress the clutch pedal
  3. Shift the transfer case into N (Neutral)
  4. Start engine
  5. Place manual transmission into gear (second or third gear are the most popular. Don’t make the mistake of putting it into Neutral as this will prevent the transmission from being lubricated and it will burn up while being towed.)
  6. Release brake pedal to ensure no movement
  7. Shut engine off and place the ignition key into the unlocked OFF position (this allows the steering wheel to turn while being towed).
  8. Apply parking brake
  9. Attach Jeep to tow vehicle
  10. Release parking brake
