possible truck damage?

I had to have my 2006 super duty towed as I had a stuck brake caliper. When the tow truck came 5hrs later he hoked up to the front and put the truck in neutral and towed it aprox. 15 miles. Come to find out that you cant tow a 4x4 by the front. What possible damage could have been done to the trany and the transfer case. I have to get Ford to check my trany and would like to suggest some things that they should check. Thanks

Did he put the transfer case in neutral or the AT in neutral?

As I stated in your other thread about this. You will be fine, I have had my truck towed like this a couple times for about 20 miles. Just don't make a habbit of it.

The proper way would be different depending on the type of hubs or shifting.

Manual Shift transfer case.. Trans and transfer case in neutral, hub locks free.

Automatic shift transfer case.. Trans in neutral, transfer case in 2WD hub locks in Auto, rear drive shaft removed.


15 miles should not matter if they didn't go too fast.

Thanks a lot guy's. For the other guy's question everything was in neutral. To "bigcountry" your truck was it running or shut off? and you had the front end off the ground and it was towed with the rear wheels on the ground?

That would have been a problem. Your tranny was not involved and the transfer case would be OK for that short of distance.
