Default Save your center diff! The AWD Tow Decal

Everyone knows you can't tow an AWD car using a conventional two-wheel tow truck. Right? Well, according to many of our customers, many tow truck operators don't seem to know. This decal is meant as simple insurance. We don't guarantee results, but it can't hurt.



AWD Tow Decal - click me!

Click the link for more info and to order.

I don't know if I read it wrong, but, the shipping is more than the sticker itself.

And as an FYI, if you don't want to use it as a sticker, I'd recommend getting one and not using it as a sticker. Instead, keep it in your glove compartment and place it OVER your VIN plate in the driver's side front of your dashboard. Almost all tow truck companies try to record the VIN once they've got your car hooked up. Once it's hooked, they can take their time to record info as they still can get a drop fee out of you if you interrupt them in mid tow.

Nice idea Dan, that's using your noodle!

Yeah, this could easily be shipped via USPS in a standard-sized envelope for less than $1.

We generally do NOT ship by USPS. If you are concerned about the shipping cost...order more stuff, and it'll be the same.

We long ago learned that our customers like to TRACK their packages. If a package takes longer than expected, the customer wants to know where it is. The cost to us of explaining that USPS has NO tracking (no, signature confirmation is not tracking) was not worth the small savings in going with USPS. Most of our shipments weigh a few pounds, so very few of them will fit in envelopes. To have a separate shipping process just for the odd decals we sell isn't worth it.

Our average order size is something like $200. Get yourself something else nice, and add a decal to it. The shipping won't change at all.

Or, if you really just want the decal, and you want it shipped cheap, just put a note in the comments field that you want it sent in an envelope by USPS for $1. If it's lost or damaged, that's on you. Sound okay?

covering your vin will get your car towed here in los angeles for sure. that's a big no no. but at least you'll have that sticker saving you from the tow that you just caused yourself. damn catch-22s!!

Based on your feedback, we've improved this decal! It's now a cling type that goes on the INSIDE of the windshield. And now the little car diagram shows a GD-chassis Impreza.
What no GC/GF chassis Impreza?
