After many futile searches decided to just ask forum. Before I invest time and money resurrecting, has anyone flat towed anything similar to the below? BTW extremely similar to Ford Ranger..

2004 B3000 Mazda truck
Automatic (not 4WD)

Bolded area makes it highly unlikely.

Your Owners Manual limits you to 50 miles and 35 MPH unless the driveshaft is removed.

If only it was as simple as looking in the owners' manual.

Actually, it is - for most vehicles.

Index==>Towing==>Recreational Vehicle Towing

It is normally addressed for most vehicles made in the last 2 decades as to whether they can, or cannot be towed behind a MH; both flat and/or dolly and some even mention the trailer alternative.

Some import manufacturers do not adhere to this general rule.

The info I provided above was taken directly from the OP's vehicle's Owners Manual.

A driveshaft decoupler is available.
It would cost more than the truck is worth.
Sentimental feelings reign, but normal thought calls for a different towed.

Thanks. The verdict is NO. Will search for a small manual truck. Again, thanks for the rapid responses.
