I currently tow a 5spd 4x 1986 4runner. It's been our toad for over 17 years. My wife has back problems and has a hard time driving a 5spd. I Wanted to upgrade to something a little more practical for us, so We just purchased a 2001 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4x4. Auto trans. I know it will need a Drive line Disconnect for sure. Is anyone towing one of these? 1998-2004 automatic 4x4 Tacoma.

Thanks Frank

I’ve towed a 2000 4Runner and am now towing a 2008 4Runner. Pretty much the same drive train as your Taco. I’ve used a driveshaft disconnect on both of them. FYI, I don’t use the shifter linkage for the disconnect, I just lay down and reach under to connect/disconnect it by hand.

To unlock the steering, I use a non-chipped key. I turn the ignition key to on and then back to off. The steering will stay unlocked until you pull the key out.
