Flat towing is fine. The transfer case must be in neutral, and transmission must be either in Park or in gear to prevent the transmission from spinning without its normal lubrication. Unlock your ignition switch so the front tires can follow as your tow vehicle turns left and right.

I understand it has to have all 4 on the ground, but I can't seem to find the right/proper tow bar. Read something on the net about a Pit Bull adjustable but not sure how to mount it to the Jeep Wrangler's front bumper. UHaul doesn't rent tow bars any longer. Help please, leaving in 3 weeks, and would rather not drive it to NC.
Well, it depends on what your tow rig is. For example if you using a full size v8 truck with with say a tow rating of 8000lbs+ you should be fine. If your using a small suv or small pickup, then you may not be, and I would look into a two wheel dolly with brakes.

Read your owners manual. It explains everything you need to know about towing your Wrangler. Like Jerry mentions above, the manual says to tow it 4 down, TC in nuetral, tranny in gear or park, and steering unlocked. I personally would not use a tow dolly without removing my rear driveshaft.
Is it for a one time trip? If so, the dolly could be your cheapest option. Are you planning on towing your Jeep on many trips in the future? Then a quality flat towing setup would be your answer. I've flat towed my TJ for years without a problem.
Too bad you live so far away. I bought a car hauler and I have a complete Roadmaster flat towing set-up for a TJ just sitting in my garage. I would sell it for a fraction of what I paid for it. Nobody in the PNW seems to be interested in it.
