I understand Toyota says no but they sell base plates and few other people report success towing that generation of sequoias.

The 2006 Sequoia with a V8 and A750E automatic transmission can be towed 4-down with the installation of a Remco transmission lube pump.

Bummer. Was hoping with transfer case the Remco pump wouldn’t be necessary.

In order to tow any Toyota / Lexus product 4down as is, it must have a MANUAL shift transfer case with NEUTRAL position. That means it cannot have a button or switch to engage 4WD, it must be shifted manually with a shift lever.

Four Down Towing Notes

For those casually looking at what they could tow four down the Motorhome Magazine Dinghy Towing Guides is a great place to start. It provide a great overview, but doesn’t get into many details.

For those that know more details; make, model, transmission, engine, etc. Then the REMOCO Towing Store is a great resource. It will tell you more details about towing; if you can, limitations, if you can’t or if a Lube Pump might solve the limitation.

But the ultimate authority is the actual Owners Manual that came with the vehicle. In most cases you can do a Google Search with the year make and model to find one online.

There are users that find out that they can tow four down just fine, going against what the manufacture states. If you go this route you’re on your own if there are any damages, this is why many won’t risk violating the warranty by towing against the owners manual recommendation.

Even vehicles that could be towed one year might not be recommended the next year, either changes to electronics, transmission, engine or the bean counters can all influence the change.

Honda CRVs up to 2014 are good cars and easy to tow, auto or manual trans.
