Has it been done, can it be done? Towing a 80s 4x4 Chevy Suburban four down

Just wondering, is it possible to flat tow a 1984 Chevy K10 4x4 Suburban four down without having to disconnect the drive shafts? She has the 700R4 automatic, NP205 Transfer case and auto engage locking hub front axle.

If the transfer case has a manual shift neutral position and the front hubs are converted to manual select type. then yes it's towable 4 down.

I can install an override to disengage the locking mechanism in the axle so that it doesn't engage, I did something similar on my Dodge Pickup so I could use the low range in 2 wheel drive.
