If towing is necessary, we recommend having your vehicle towed by your Toyota dealer or a commercial towing service, using a wheel-lift type truck or a flat bed truck. Use a safety chain system for all towing, and abide by all state/provincial and local laws. 2WD models: If towing your vehicle with a wheel-lift type truck from the front, the vehicle's rear wheels and axles must be in good conditions.

If they are damaged, use a towing dolly or flat bed truck. 4WD models: If towing your vehicle with a wheel-lift type truck, use a towing dolly.
