Len: There might be two solutions to your problem other then buying an other car.
Remco has what they call a Drive Shaft Coupling system and a Lube Pump system. You might give them a call at 1-877-645-7171 to see if they have something that would fit your needs.
As for towning, I've been pulling a 94 Suzuki Sidekick 4X4 for the past 10 years or more. Noted other day miliage indicator had rolled over 70K and this don't enclude towing since I have a speedometer disconnect that activates when I plug into my motor home. I would guess there's another 30K in pulling mode.
Sidekick is easy to pull, easy on fuel, can haul 4 although crowded and is outstanding in snow as I found out couple years back. Also because of weight, I don't fool with Aux-braking with it. Oh yes, roll up the back seat and I have a mini-mini pickup. Wife is going after several bags of dirt and mulch. Figure it'll handle up to 1,000 lbs just fine.
