I think he's referring to the electronic transfer case switch being in the neutral position. On my Wrangler, I put the transfer case in neutral and the transmission in park.

On my Cherokeee there is a small button that you push with the point of a pen to put the transfer case into neutral

On my 2010 Jeep Liberty, it too has a small button that puts the transfer case in neutral. This effectively unlocks all four wheels completely. Even if you put the transmission in park, the wheels are free to roll. In fact, the emergency brake is the only way to keep the vehicle from rolling. Since there is no longer a connection with the transfer case, no cooling or lubrication is needed while towing. The owners manual is quite specific on the simple steps that must be followed in a certain order. I can put my Jeep in neutral in about 60 seconds!

Definitely flat tow for us. I don't want the hassle of fiddling with a dolly. We have had two toads, a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited (meaning a 4 door) and 2012 Wrangler Unlimited. I moved the base plate from the 2010 to the 2012 myself, not a difficult task.

I have backed up a couple of times when I got into a jam. First couple of years when I was learning to gauge how much space I needed against what I saw out the windshield. I'm better at it now. Unlike Jet pilot Waiter I advise you to be very careful when backing up your rig with a car attached via flat tow. You can get away with a few feet but you can't control the direction of the front wheels in reverse, caster works against you in reverse.

Avoid the dolly, that's my advice. Also be sure your new car can be towed flat, read the owners manual don't trust the salesman. Not all jeeps can be towed flat.
