Flat towing a 1992 Jeep Wrangler

My Wrangler has a 5 speed standard transmission. I have always understood that I must remove the rear driveshaft to flat tow it, otherwise the rear transmission bearing will not be lubricated. However there are some that say that if I put the transfer case in neutral and put the transmission in high gear, that the oil slinger will spin and keep the rear bearing lubricated.

Has anyone towed their Jeep this way?

Thanks
Dave

Transfer case in neutral, the transmission gears, should not turn at all.
The fluid circulation pump on most New Process, transfer cases, is in the rear shaft extension housing so when the rear shaft turns , the T/Case fluid circulates.
There will be a tag on the back of the transfer case giving the model number.

Do you have the owners manual for your Jeep ?
If not , that's what to look for, and where to find the exact info you need.
There are many web sites with free down loads of the older manuals.

Dave,

We tow our 1990 wrangler with 5 speed and NP-231 transfer case 4 down all the time.

No problems.

I had a 92' YJ. Towed it many thousands of miles.

Transfer case to neutral
Transmission in any gear (manual), or park (automatic)

No need to remove driveshaft, fuses, or anything else.

ALL wranglers (except Rubicon models) from 1987 to 2006 have a NP231 T case as std equipment.
All Rubicons have the NP241 case.
All Wranglers flat tow the same way as far as Case and trans go.
Case in Neutral, trans in gear or Park if Auto trans.

As the others say above. Specifically the owners manual on my 1995 Wrangler says put transfer case in neutral, transmission in gear (doesn't specify but I put it in 5th) and turn ignition to aux position.
