How to Tow a 1999 Jeep Wrangler


A cross-country move, a fun day of off-roading or just a flat tire are all reasons it's a good idea to know how to tow a 1999 Jeep Wrangler. Of the two towing methods -- flatbed towing and wheel-lift towing -- flatbed towing is considered the gentlest on your vehicle. If you are not stranded by the side of a road and have time to prepare for a tow, some tricks like tightening the lug nuts can prevent mishaps while the vehicle is in transit.

  • Disconnect the rear drive shaft before towing because the drive shaft on a 1999 Jeep Wrangler can malfunction if connected during towing.

  • Tighten the lug nuts to avoid losing wheels while being towed.

  • Remove the front hubs or protect them from the elements. You can fashion your own hub covers using duct tape or even a soup can.

  • Wrap duct tape around the U-joint of the drive shaft.

  • Use a trailer to tow your Jeep when the option exists. Wheel-lift tow trucks can damage the steering.
