Wj Towing a 2000 Limited

OK so I am relocating to Texas, and I have got to get all my vehicles there too. I went on U-hauls website to checkout their tow dolly. On the website it says I have to disconnect the drive shaft in order to tow it. I don't see any issues there, it sounds pretty straight forward. Today I went to a U-Haul store to get some boxes and stuff and thought I would ask the clerk about the tow dolly VS a car trailer. The guy types in my info and then tells me that I will need to trailer it or tow the vehicle with all 4 wheels on the ground with everything in neutral. He said the transfer case will not allow it to be towed even if the drive shaft is disconnected, he said something about the transfer case will get messed up. Now I am a mechanic by trade and what he said makes no sense being that the only rotating unit is the rear diff. In my view the only thing that might be an issue would be the driveshaft, and only if it had to be timed to the rear diff. If anybody has any input on this I would be very interested to hear it. But I think the guy is just trying to upsell the trailer to me. What do you guys think???
