Big Question??

For anyone who has a Jeep Wrangler Sport 2010.. I have been pulling mine behind my rig with both the transfer case and the selector in the Neutral position. Now, I hear that is no good for the vehicle it should be in Park??

Can someone please clarify this for me.. Much appreciated

Mine is a 1999 with a manual tranny. You are supposed to put the transfer case in neutral and the transmission in gear. If it is an automatic transmission you do the same thing only put the thing in park with transfer case in neutral. Nothing has changed in regards to this procedure from my year to yours.

Transfer case in neutral and the tranny in park is correct. Don't wanting things turning and lacking for lube. Most likely it hasn't hurt anything thus far, if you haven't pulled it for too many miles, without driving it or at least starting it and going through drive and reverse for a bit.
With a manual, TC would be in neutral, same as above and the tranny in top gear, so it will get some lube. Also if the TC would somehow jump out of neutral, your engine wouldn't be over revving mercifully and until you realized that something wasn't right.
One of the nice things about the later JK series Wrangler, is that they have no steering lock to contend with, so that's a real plus IMO.

Your owner's manual should have a step-by-step procedure for 4-down towing. My automatic 2014 Wrangle requires I put the transmission in park, transfer case in neutral, but only in the correct order. Just follow the owner's manual.

As stated, leave tranny in park and t/case in neutral. The transmission cannot be allowed to turn as it has no rear pump driven off the output shaft for lubrication. The t/case does in fact have an oil pump driven off the output shaft, so it is able to lubricate the unit while being towed. If the transmission is allowed to turn, it can lead to major damage. It really gets ugly quickly.
