Towing a Grand

My book is al ready packed.

I need to tow my grand 2001, select trac, behind a uhaul truck. Should I put it up on a trailer or use the auto dolly. I will be towing it about 1700 miles. If I use the dolly and leave the back wheels down I know I put the tcase in neutral but where do I put the trans. Does it need to be in gear to keep things lubed or not.

Thanks,
Ross

Look at http://www.jeep.com/4x4/index.html?c...epage&type=tab

If you put TC in neutral, shaft going from automatic trans to TC will not move. So it does not matter in what gear you put the trans. In general, lube pump on car trans is diven by the engine. There are only a few marine trans where lube pump is driven by outgoing shaft...

1700 miles is a bit to drive. Think it would be most convenient to have the whole thing on a trailer. And the trailer will probably have brakes as well.

If you leave the back wheels on the ground, disconnect the drive shaft. Thats what i did. The place that rents the u-haul should tell you to do the same thing.
