We have pulled rear drive autos and trucks for years to the auto auction on a tow dolly with the engine idling can't see why it won't work for you it will just add a few more miles but a lot cheaper than buying a new car or adding the transmission pump if you don't tow often.

I think Waiter21 has the best solution. Then you could use almost any pedal pusher/puller without overpowering the brake system.
However, I'd recommend a rental car would be your safest bet. You'll be assured that your jeep won't be damaged.

I knew a guy who did this with a Ford pickup for years. Only 4 bolts involved and a lot simpler solution until you get your driveline disconnect.

X2. Just mark the shaft and diff so that you bolt it up in the same orientation to prevent vibration.
When you get your disconnect you will be doing the same thing without getting under the vehicle.

Ready Brake is self adjusting in regard to presence/absence of booster vacuum.

Break buddy you can adjust it down.

Seriously.. There is only one way I would tow with automatic in neutral and engine idling. that is...going to dealer to have car modified for towing (IE: Installing Remco LP-1 Lube Pump).. this is a short tow.

Though I do not favor towing w/o supplemental brakes.. That is what I did when I had my LP-1 Installed.. Now I tow engine off, still in neutral.

My preference was the way I did my first towed.. Axle lock so I towed in park, Car was a true trailer.. NO power to wheels.

Home is where I park it!
