Towing a D-90 - Do I need a flatbed?

Greetings,

I'm taking delivery of my 95 SW D-90 tomorrow. The guy said he was going to have it towed to my place.
Should I call him tomorrow in a panic, and tell him to NOT tow it? or to use a flatbed? or to put it in neutral, etc?

Please let me know if I need to have the tower take precautions.

thanks,

-arbi

hi Arbi!

I think you jut need to put the TGB in neutral position, because some gear boxes have a presurised lubricating system.

You want to have it put on a Flatbed, or they have to remove the driveshaft for the tires that are on the ground. The T-case could get screwed up towing it, you need a flat bed.

I also recommend the flatbed, as does the factory manual.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.
