It doesn't look good.

From Remco Towing;

Quote:
If vehicle has a Neutral Position in the 4WD Transfer Case, then vehicle is "Tow-able as is". Just follow procedures in Owner's Manual. If vehicle does not have a Neutral Position in the Transfer Case then it is a "Trailer Only" vehicle and cannot be flat towed.

I own a 2002 4x4 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the transfer case can be shifted into neutral for towing. Even the full time 4x4 version has a neutral position for towing. All of the 4x4's have this capability If I remember...

Just to be sure, refer to the owners manual for the Jeep or look it up on one of the many Jeep Cherokee forums. Have fun!

But, if there is no transfer case, it can't be towed all 4 down.

Most manufacturers have used various transfer cases throughout the years.

Not all transfer cases have a neutral position.

Not all transfer cases that do have a neutral position are towable.

Unfortunately, there is no hard and fast rule regarding the towing of any vehicle.

My .01 cents worth. I have a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Quadra Drive II NV245 transfer case with Diesel engine as my toad.

The two wheel drive version can NOT be towed four down.

Quadra-Trac IŽ full-time
single-speed 4WD includes NV140 transfer case can NOT be towed 4 down.

Quadra-Trac IIŽ active 4WD includes NV245 transfer case
(included with V8 and diesel engines) CAN be towed 4 down

Quadra-DriveŽ II active 4WD includes NV245 transfer case
and Electronic Limited-Slip Differentials for front and rear
axles (included with Quadra Drive II Group) CAN be towed 4 down

If it is full time AWD it should be the Quadra-Drive II. The neutral is a small, push with a pin, button on the 08'. Follow instructions in manuel

I hope this helps.
