Car dolly question...

so im trying to find out if you need to take the driveshaft off when towing a 4X4. im looking into getting a 2002 F250 4x4 and trade my 92 fullsize bronco wich is also 4x4 plus cash for it. do i need to pull it off or is it fine in neutral with the front tires on the dolly. and if so i think im just gonna get some plates and drive the F250 back... SHHHH though lol THanks

If you are on secondary road & can keep your speed down (50-70kph) you should be able to load it backwards and it will tow OK. I wowed a suburban backwards once and it was OK at those speeds.

I was going to suggest this as well.

with a 4X4 it tows better backwards, BUT you could get a flat deck for the truck and tow it on that , it would be more useful having a flat deck then a tow dolly trailer anyway.
