Need info about flat towing a 64 Willys CJ-5

Just purchased an original 1964 CJ-5 and am considering setting it up to flat tow. It has a 3 speed T-90 transmission and a twin stick T-15 transfer case with Warn lockouts. I will fabricate base plates myself so I can use the Roadmaster tow bar that I use on my 2012 Wrangler. My question is, is it safe to tow with the transfer case in neutral or is there lubrication issues flat towing the T-18?

Google early jeep forum and read all you want on the subject. Like most things, opinions differ but most agree simply put transfer case and transmission in neutral and go. That's what I do with my '75 jeep

The Model 18 Transfer Case, can be towed 4 down with no problems. The output shaft is offset and lower than the input shaft. The output shaft is also submerged in oil. Just make sure you check the level in the T Case because it is known to leak a little even when new. Place the T Case in neutral and transmission in any gear and the front hubs disconnected (two wheel drive) and tow it.
