i highly doubt it. unless it is wrecked they will not drag it ( flatbed) and there is no pplace for the bars to connect to hang tow it.

Worked for a towing company, been there down that. there are ways around it. Put the truck on backwards have a wrecker on the front to lift the front op while the winch is pulling it back
