1993 jeep towing

We will be attempting our first tow with our berkshire next weekend to the Family Motor coach Rally in Perry Georgia. We have a Jeep Sahara 5sp manual 4 whl dr. My understanding is to shift the transfer case to neutral and put the Jeep in gear. Doesn't matter which gear. Can somebody tell me if this is correct. Thanks, Frank

I have a '94 Wrangler that I used to flat tow behind my truck. The best solution is to remove your rear driveshaft. If you put the t-case in "neutral," your front and rear driveshafts are locked together. Look at the t-case shifter: it goes from 2hi, down to 4hi, (front and rear shafts locked together,) to neutral (same,) to 4lo (same.) If you tow like that, your front and rear tires will be fighting each other around turns, and you might break front axle u-joints. If you don't want to drop the driveshaft, keep the t-case in 2hi and put the transmission in neutral. You won't harm anything with the manual tranny in neutral.
