The transfer case sits at the back of the transmission. It's what splits power to both front and rear axles. Neutral on the transfer case disconnects it from the transmission. Both axles rotate while being towed but not the transmission.

How does the drive-line disconnect work with 4WD.  Do you need one for the front also?

No front axle disconnect is required.  On my Tacoma, it's the rear driveshaft only.  With the rear disconnected, the transfer case in 2WD, the transmission in Park, auxiliary braking system set up and unlocked steering you are good to go.  I haven't pulled it yet, but that's what the procedure states.

I have over 6k towed miles on my 2015. It is a manual transmission, rear drive disconnect, transfer case in 2wd. No issues.

Leland-

I saw your thread on the inverter and it jogged my memory and made me wonder how things turned out with towing the Tacoma?
