Which fuse do I pull when towing my 03 Wrangler?

Can anyone tell me which fuse to pull when I tow my 2003 Jeep Wrangler 4.0? The factory manual says to disconnect the negative battery cable, can do but I know many are pulling a fuse.

As far as I know, you shouldn't have to pull anything as long as your ignition switch has an "off not locked" position.

You may want to pull the fuse for the brake lights but I never did on my old Wrangler.

The fuse "problem" started with the 07's that didn't have the off/unlocked position.

Don't pull any fuses on the TJ. Just turn the key to the first position to unlock the steering wheel, put he transfer case in neutral, put the transmission in gear or park, and don't forget to release the parking brake.

They are right you don't have to pull any fuses to tow a 03 TJ. Just turn the key 1 click to unlock the steering collumn put the transfercase in neutral and the transmission back in gear or park release the parking brake. And away you go. Only on the 07 and 08 JKs are you to pull the IOD fuse or disconnect the negitive battery cable. The 09 and 10 JKs do not have the steering collumn lock at all so no key is needed when towing.
