What steps do I have to take to tow a jeep 1981 CJ7 with a standard transmission.?

Cars & Vehicles
Jeep

Buy a tow bar. Install the tow bar cleats to the front bumper of the Jeep. Attach the tow bar with the removable pins and then connect the ball connector to the ball hitch of the towing vehicle. Run safety chains from the tow bar to the hitch loops of the towing vehicle. Make sure you lock the ball connection with either a nut & bolt OR a padlock. Put the Jeep in 3rd gear, make sure the hubs are NOT locked. Put the key in the ignition and unlock the steering wheel. Drive slowly, try to stay on streets and don't do too much highway driving. If towing at night, it's a good idea to use trailer lights - in some states you need trailer lights any time you tow - day or night. Good luck.
