    no one says anything about flat towing with shafts in place but I was told that short distance like 35 miles would be fine.

    Yes at very low speed. The TM discusses this, better check before smoking a $4000 transmission.

Fortunately one of the bolts on the battery box was close enough that I was able to grab the 1st thread on the axle and they slide out so easy that's all I needed.
    I just use one of the bolts that hold on the hub / gear cap. If the bolt was a snake it would have bit you when you removed the center cap to get to the axle. It is the correct threads and long enough then just replace it when done.

    need more details for educational purposes... but I guess not in this thread (gravel or dirt for things to slip if needed, speeds, was rear axle shafts pulled, etc.)
