Towing with 2wd in Garage, Trailer & Towing Posted August 14, 2017 Provide us with a towing rule & someone will show us of successfully breaking it. Years ago I pulled a 4,000 pound camping trailer with a 4,400 67 Chrysler. With 87,000 miles, the transmission clutches had to be replaced. I towed slower & was very careful when off pavement. My best advice for towing was to always know how you getting out before you go off pavement. Four wheel drive reduces problems & I believe well worth the cost. I tow an open car trailer with a 2wd 1500 Silverado with an equalizer hitch, sway bars, & trailer brakes no faster than 65 mph. A 3/4 ton 4 wd would be a requirement with an enclosed trailer.
