    Default Front wheel drive only

    Hi I have a 96 S-10 Blazer and tow it behind a motorhome. I tow it with a car dolly and remove the rear drive shaft. On my last trip I realized I didn't bring the drive shaft with, so I drove around in front wheel drive only. Just wondering if anyone else has done this. It seems to be fine.

    Thank You Fishook

    For emergency situations it should be fine but I wouldnt make a habit of doing this.
    Theres a few companies that make driveshaft couplers, with one of these installed you dont have to pull the D/S just un couple it and leave it in place might be a little easier and alleviate forgetting the D/S again.
