Have Ford F-150 4x4 with electronic transfer case. So will place it in two wheel drive to disconnect front drive and install drive shaft disconnect for rear. Anybody installed an electronic drive shaft disconnect? Did you get all new drive shaft? If so from whom? Or have the modifications to existing?

I'll be watching this with great interest. I have the 2010 4x4 F150. What year is yours? Thanks for asking this question. I've just been planning on a trailer but not liking the added hardware storage.

Did you check the Remco Towing Application Charts? Maybe they can help you.

My dad has had one on his 2003 f150 Harley Davidson edition since almost the day he bought the truck new. His is the manual disconnect and he hasn't had any problems. It's much easier to reconnect the drive shaft on level ground and roll the truck back and forth with your foot out the door while sitting in the drivers seat and the engine off to get it engaged.

I'm not sure of the brand, he had it on his previous truck and transferred it to this truck when he upgraded trucks.

My RANGER 4x4...has the Ford (only) "transfer case neutral kit". Electronic (what isn't these days?)...intsalled by Ford. What seemed to be a computer pig-tail and some re-programming of one of the computers.
Took about an hour or so...and 400 bucks. I think it's a rip...but: they got it:you want it. BlueOx basplate, Roadmaster tow bar. Tows just fine.

Maybe something similar for the F-150 4x4. Good luck!

When I pulled my F150 behind my motor home I just droped the rear driveshaft. It took about 5 mins. or so to drop and about the same to go back in.. Other ops. were to expensive for me..Not so nice when in bad weather, but worked for me on dry days..

I have the driveline disconnect for a 2005 F150 2wd, I had to get a new driveshaft. Mine came from Remco thru a local dealer.

Thanks. Looks like the new driveshaft with the driveline disconnect will be my option too. Will let you know how it works.
