It seems that Ford has offered a Neutral position to the Transfer Case for all F-150 4x4's. Before I start shopping for a Raptor, I'd like to get the straight scoop from the owners on this.

Anyone flat towing a 2012 Ford F-150, or better a 2012 Ford Raptor?

I was able to find my answer and it was positive.

Here is the image of the Dash Display with the truck ready to be towed.

It is amazing how many (not) experts there are in the forums specific to this truck that willfully give bad advice to simply increase their post counts.

I am glad RV.net is more grounded than those other on-line zoos.

pjcnlv.....Check the Raptor owner's manual. Some you can download. If not, tell the dealer you would like to tow the truck and you want to see if it's towable. Look in the manual under "flat towing" or "recreational towing". I just bought a new Chevy Silverado 4x4 and new that it was towable, but wanted to make sure that Chevy didn't make some weird mid year design change. I asked to see the manual and made sure it was towable.
