I just have a question when I flat tow my Rubi. I'm wondering if I can disconnect the rear drive shaft and not effect the trasmission cooling operation. My reasoning is to save wear on the cv joint.

Just went out and looked at mine. The rear DS doesn't have a CV joint, only the front at the transfer case end. Am I missing something in your question?

If you are going to flattow any moderate distance, imho~>300 miles, I would disconnect both the shafts.

I would rephrase the question.......How can I disconnect the rear drive shaft so I can do a front dig :Military Jeeper: :jammin:

Why not put the TC in neutral?
:) Unless your running some crazy drive-line angles, I don't see any reason to disconect the shafts.

According to the owners manual both the auto and manual should have their TC in neutral to tow. The auto transmission should be in park and the manual in gear.
