Towing our 2003 Jeep

We bought our 2003 Jeep Wrangler as our daily driver and to tow behind our MH. It has a manual tranny. No problem with that. Now our question. Getting the tow hitch set up to tow 4 down. Know the Transfer case goes in Neutral. Read to put the tranny in "gear". Which gear?

I run mine in 1st or 3rd. As long as it is in a gear it works fine. Just dont forget to turn the ignition key one click forward to unlock the steering. (don't ask)

Yup just like mrmikey said any forward gear is fine. Most go first gear. I guess it's preference.
