Can I tow a 98 GMC Jimmy 4x4?

I found a great deal on this vehicle, can it be towed 4 down? It is automatic trans, 4x4.

Thanks

If the transfer case has a neutral position (i.e., it's not a full-time AWD), it should be towable 4-down.

With the driveline connected? I've got the same vehicle & have been told that unbolting the driveline is a must. Would love to be misinformed on that Duz its a pain in the rear.

Is yours a 2WD? If so, then it probably isn't towable 4 down without modifications (driveshaft disconnect, transmission fluid pump, etc.). If it's a 4WD with a neutral position in the transfer case, then the transfer case should disconnect the engine and transmission from the wheels when the transfer case is in the neutral position. What does your owner's manual say about "recreational towing"?
