Flat tow 4 down, or on a trailer. Remove the rear driveshaft for a dolly.

Well, I guess we have different ideas now
Why does the drive shaft have To come off?? I guess I dont understand what the difference is. if tc is in neutral?? Wats the difference if the front wheels are rolling or on dolly. Doesn't the rear drive shaft do the exact same thing as if I was flat towing or dolly towing?? As long as tc is in neutral of coarse.

I would enjoy reading your reasoning or the source for that recommendation.
