Can you flat tow a Jeep Rubicon?

I just bought a Jeep Rubicon to go off-roading. However, I’ve never had to tow a Jeep before, and I wasn’t sure how I should tow it to avoid damage. Can I flat tow a Jeep Rubicon behind my RV?

You can flat tow the Jeep Rubicon as well as any other Jeep Wrangler model, regardless of the trim or model year. You just need to follow a few directions:
  • Make sure that the transfer case is in neutral.
  • Put the car in park if it’s an automatic; manual cars should be in gear (not in neutral).
  • Always tow in a forward direction.
Alternatively, you can use a flatbed trailer to tow the Jeep Rubicon, although you should never dolly tow a Jeep Rubicon. If you dolly tow the Jeep Rubicon, you can damage the drivetrain and transmission of the vehicle.
