Sucks. Nah, I think as long as the tower puts the Jeep in neutral everything should be okay. I think???

if its flat towed, jeep should be in neutral, and transfer case in neutral. half-tow or w/e where they just lift the front up, should be the same way i think.

roll back it doesnt matter.

Yep, transfer case should be in neutral but if it wasn't towed cross country it shouldn't have done any appreciable damage.

Look at your owners manual it shows exactly how it should be towed.

transfer case should be in neutral how ever some asshat that towed my jeep before I had the tow bar just put the transmission in neutral and there was no harm done

Manual states BOTH tranny and transfer case to be in Neutral for towing.

Transfer case should be in neutral. But with a stick shift it is not as critical as with an auto.
