Do all Jeep products have a manual lever to unlock the transfer case?

I would say all wranglers have a manual level but other models of Jeeps have an electronic switch that puts the transfer case into neutral.

Just asking, why would I not have the transmission in neutral?

I apologize, I didn't not mean to imply that it is a big deal. Only an added convenience and one less thing to forget. Some of us are working with very limited memory and processor capabilities so keeping it as simple as possible can be very advantageous!

The Trans gears will spin if it is in neutral and it doesn't lube itself properly when it's being spun by the output shaft like that. It will burn up bearings in it.

Even with the transfer case in neutral, some torque gets imparted to it.

I have towed a 2010 four door Jeep Wrangler for three years and found it to be the perfect tow vehicle. I put the transfer case in neutral, the automatic transmission in park, the key position in aux. and disconnect the battery with a quick connect. This was the instructions that I was given from the manufacturer. I went with a vehicle with a floor transfer shifter because I was told that anything else would not serve the purpose and would possibly cause damage to the transmission. Never had a problem in three years.

We tow a 2009 Wrangler and love it. 5 mins to hookup and 3 mins to unhook. A blast to drive and they look totally cool. Love the no steering wheel lock. Just one more thing not to worry about. Transfer case in neutral and trans in park and away you go. We tow it with us all the time and not one problem yet. Have fun!

Can you tell me what I need to get to tow the jeep? I know I need a tow bar, do they come with the parts to hook to the jeep? What about tail lights?
Thanks
