Well, seeing as though a willys + car hauler is too heavy for a cherokee to tow I'm looking at flat towing my newest toy home. From looking over parts and manuals I can see that the willys has dana 23 and 25 axles. Being that the 23 is a full floater and the 25 is essentially the same design (in that they both can be disconnected from the differential) what are the drawbacks of removing the drive flanges to keep the differentials from rotating while driving? The only thing spinning would be the wheel bearings, correct? And the hubs would still be secured down to the spindle? If there is a huge downside to this I can't really think of it now. Just replace the wheel bearings with new units, cover up the flanges somehow, and call it good for the trip home, right?
