Maybe check towing guides on Remco's site or fmca site.

You can't use a tow dolly unless you tow it backwards (not normally recommended) with the front wheels down and that's not ideal. Unless I'm badly mistaken, none of the 2wd Chevys can by towed four down or rear down on a dolly without disconnecting the drive shaft. You would have to tow on a trailer or disconnect the drive line.

I got a Driveline disconnect that works great. Like pulling out a manual choke and you're disconnected. Install it youself and it cost about a grand.
