Alright, asking more questions than necessary, but I have one more. To refresh, I'm using a tow dolly to pull my truck about 2000 miles, so the back 2 wheels will be on the ground. I've disconnected the rear drive shaft at the rear diff. This is where I'm confused. If I strap it to the frame at this point it will continue to spin and could wear through the strap. So I think the entire rear drive shaft needs to be pulled off at the transfer case. Any suggestions on this? If its pulled from the tcase, will any fluids come with it? I'm a novice so details/best methods are appreciated. Thanks

How could the driveshaft spin if disconnected at the rear diff and your 2 front wheels are on a tow dolly?

Am I missing something?

Just for future reference, you can disconnect at the t-case end and nothing will leak. You do need to put the nuts back on or pull the drum to avoid it falling off accidentally, although even this is pretty unlikely.

Why not just drive it? All this sounds like a hassle to me
