Anyway, it was towed to the dealer that way, so if it that's a warranty-voiding tow style the dealer didn't say anything about it.

^^ agreed

WD40 Yep!
Screaming Yellow trailer!
And, get the hubs re-drilled so you can run a set of SVTF wheels on it.

jonrjen Since the two front tires and wheels would be off of the ground and only the rear wheels trailing on the ground, the traction control would not be an issue. However after doing some research. I have found a few individuals who have confirment that the ramps do and will rub on the rocker panels as well as the front facia hanging up on the dolly platform lip.
I am going to purchase a new 18' (16' deck+2'dove tail) car hauler trailer to haul it on. This way it is up off of the ground all together. Now the question is, do I get the standard black trailer or a yellow trailer to match the SVTF color.

Uhaul has full sized tailers that can fit a car, so that is a "flatbed" with ramps.

That might be a better option than just the 2 wheels on.

revamp throw a nice-sized scooter on the back of the RV and leave the SVT at home to play with when you get back...

When my shifter fell apart, I called ford roadside and insisted on a flatbed. Perhaps something more "disposable" like a Saturn SL would be a better choice.
