I think I'd have bought a 4wd to tow. We had a '97 Jeep GC with full time 4wd and it worked great!
Did they offer a driveshaft disconnect? I'd have done that before a trans pump.
I know of one friend that had a Remco pump in a Chrysler van, the pump quit, the alarm didn't sound and the warranty wouldn't cover the rebuild (naturally).
But then I also have two friends that used the Remco disconnect, both had trans failures while towing.
That's why I'd recommend a 4wd Jeep!
