Yep! I pulled a Liberty for quite awhile. Granted it does "feel" strange to put the little beast in Park, but if the Transfer case is in Neutral, then all is good to go and you should put it in Park.
I do remember that for some time I used to leave the key in and turned to the first position to "unlock" the steering wheel. I did that 'til someone here on iRV2 told me that Jeep stopped putting steering wheel locks on Liberty's (and maybe some other models) several years back. Sure enough, I went out to my Liberty and with no key in the ignition, I could turn the steering wheel lock to lock, it was hard, but I did prove to myself that the guy was right. From that day on, I would put the transfer case in neutral, the transmission in Park, and the key in my pocket.
