The Owners Manual says that to tow a Jeep with a manual transmission, you should leave it in gear and put the transfer case in neutral. Does anybody know why the transmission shouldn't also be in neutral?
I'm wondering how that translates to coasting during normal driving. There are three ways to coast (depress clutch and leave in gear, depress clutch and shift to neutral, or shift to neutral and release clutch) and I'm trying to figure out if any of them could be causing transmission damage. The OM specifically states not to coast in neutral with an automatic trans but doesn't say anything about the manuals.
