Towing w/4 wheels on the ground

Anyone know if a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6cyl Selectrac can be towed with all wheels on the ground? My 99 Quadratrac is towable in "park" w/the transfer case in "nutral". The Selectrac owners manual says it needs to be flatbedded but?? I want to be able to tow it behind an RV.

Pull front shaft, t-case in neutral, no issues. I may be old school with pulling the driveshaft, but if anything pops out of gear there's nothing to bind.

Re: Towing w/4 wheels on the ground

All WJ's and ZJ's can be flat towed with the trans in park and t-case in neutral. You just can't put one end or the other on a dolly. So either all 4 on the ground or a flatbed. If you ever break down make sure they bring a rollback and not a front lift truck.
