Transfer case in Neutral--if not on a trailer you need lights too and saftey chains-

And the transmission in Park (automatic) or in gear (manual) for flat towing.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

If older Jeep with a Dana 300 transfer case.

You need to disconnect the rear drive shaft at the rear axle.

Dana 300 does not have anyway of lubricating the rear output bearing while being towed.

Your jeep is not hat old.. Look in your user manual for towing instructions.

If you flat tow make sure your steering wheel is unlocked, the front wheels need to follow a turn. If they are locked you will wear out the front tires quickly.
