    flat towing a 2000 sport

    Would it be ok to tow my explorer behind my truck for about 25 miles on back roads? I know its not good for the trans so I was thinking just let the thing idle in N or even in Drive for the trip. it would only be 1 or 2x a year I would do this. Thanks for any replies.

    IS there any reason why a 2000 sport is rated at 1000 lbs less than a 4 door with the same gears and stuff? My truck is rated at 9000 total lbs, but the 4 door is at 10 000 lbs.
