Is it an automatic transmission or standard?

It is an automatic but two wheel drive so no transfer case to put into neutral

Remco lists a lube pump kit for this application.

You might also want to look at a drive shaft disconnect. Several of my friends use a drive shaft disconnect to flat tow rear wheel drive vehicles both with automatic and manual transmissions. Then you do not have to rely on a transmission pump.

2WD Jeeps with automatics can't be towed four down. Needs to be a 4WD with a transfer case and true neutral as not all 4WD's can be towed four down.
Driveshaft disconnect or lube pump are your best bets now.

I tow a grand Cherokee 4x2 automatic using a driveshaft disconnect. Stay away from a lube pump those are primarily for front wheel drive vehicles.

I had a drive shaft disconnect on a GMC Jimmy about 10 years ago. I live in an area where they put salt on the roads in the wintertime. I was not diligent in keeping the disconnect clean and lubricated.

It turned out to be a problem for me. I traded for a GMC Jimmy with electronic disconnect of the transfer case to solve the problem.

I highly recommend keeping it clean and lubricated if you get one.
