Flat towing

May be a stupid question but I was wondering if the odometer tracks the miles on a tow vehicle like a F150 or Jeep?

My Jeep Wrangler’s odometer does not track mileage when it’s being towed.

Depends on the vehicle. GENERALLY older cards with speedometer cables will accumulate miles but newer cars with electronic odometer displays will NOT accumulate miles in most cases.

A 4x4 vehicle with the transfer case in neutral will not record towed miles. An older vehicle with a speedometer cable and cruise control is easy to stop from recording miles if you can see the cruise module under the hood.

The Jeep Wrangler does not record the mileage, but I keep a log of the miles I tow it for the tire rotation and renewal of tires. There is still wear.
