Towing my ZJ

Hi all, newbie here. Sorry in advance if I missed my question in the archives.

I want to tow my 96 Grand Cherokee behind a class A 30 foot motor home. Probably not long distance for now. I am looking at a tow bar for flat? towing. My question is, where would I attach the bar to the Jeep? I looked under the bumper cover and there seems to be a space filled with Styrofoam between the cover and frame rail. Would I need some kind of adapter to extend the hook points to connect the tow bar?

Also, any recommendations as to prepare the Jeep for towing. IE, xfer case in neutral ok, (4x4) or drop the drive lines.

Thanks in advance to everyone.

You would need a way to attach them to the "frame" on the unibody to provide enough strength to tow it. As for towing it after that pulling drive shafts is always the safest way to tow. If you don't want to do that follow what jeep says in the owners manual.
