Do you mean factory hubs? If you have your owners manual, it gives you instructions on how to tow. Cheers

If you mean manual hubs, WARN makes them and you can get them off AMAZON.COM.

The manual transmission transfer case had a neutral position, however, the auto does not. I do not know if you could hold the transfer case shift lever over with a bungee cord if it would keep it in a neutral position or not. I know that you are supposed to drive a sportage being towed every 500 miles per the owners manual (I think).:confused:
I put a universal trans oil cooler on a 97 I had. Put it in front of the AC condenser. I found the line from the transmission to the radiator and cooled the oil between the transmission and the radiator. This was to allow the oil to warm up and not be too cold. :mellow:

Just my 2 cents!!!:cool:

Never tried it myself, but what about unlocking hubs, putting the rear wheels on the dolly, and locking the steering wheel?
