99 GC limited towing ???

My boss is looking at getting a 99 GC limited to pull behind his new motor home. If he uses the wj what does he have to do to safely flat tow it???

Is it just put the transfer case in neutral and the trans in neutral and unlock the steering wheel???

Thanks guys

Yes, it has a V-8.

As far as the transfer case goes I don't know what it has and I am not at all familiar with what is available on the 99 WJ. If there are manual or push-button type tranfer cases, is one better than the other for flat towing?
