Put transfer case in neutral, auto trans in Park, this keeps the automatic transmission from rotating without the engine running the transmission pump for lubrication.

You can find your model year owner's manual here: Jeep Owners | Download an Owners Manual 2004 - 2011 | Jeep

It describes the procedure.

The Rubicon is a version of the Wrangler (or if a 4 door, Wrangler Unlimited) model. Follow the instructions posted above. Since your Jeep was made before mid 2012, you will need to have a key in the ignition so the steering is unlocked when towing.

If your Jeep has an anti-theft chip key, have a cheap non-chip key made for this purpose. That way the steering can be unlocked, but without a chip the engine will not run more than a few seconds preventing theft.

Don't know on the Jeep, but my Ford Fiesta requires that the battery be disconnected. I always figured it might be because the power steering is electric.

Boowho??

You do not need to disconnect the battery on a Wrangler.

So my next question is, we pulled it from Tx to Colorado, first thing I did wrong was I turned the key one too many clicks, killed my battery, not my biggest issue tho, now my engine light is on. Any ideas why? Manual says as long as it is not flashing to not worry to much?
