Towing Jeep Grand Cherokee

Had trouble with a '06 not wanting allow transfer case to into neutral on return trips. It drives fine but can't tow it back home. Have been told that a redesign on '11s and newer has fixed this problem. Any information about this will be helpful. I am looking at a 2011 Grand Cherokee.

Which transfer case / 4wd system is having issues with shifting to neutral? Sometimes a roll forward or back will allow it to shift. If physical linkage, likely just a adjustment problem.

What Vince said it very true. The transfer case linkage is very sensitive to adjustment, and when worn is almost impossible to correctly adjust. DW's 1997 Limited has a rebuilt transfer case and new linkage for that reason.($700) They are a great tow vehicle, but the new ones have 2 different transfer cases, get in writing (from dealership owner) the specific Jeep you buy may safely be towed 4-down.
