Flat Towing a YJ

Please don't bash me. But I have a few questions on how to Flat tow a Yj. If i get the stuff necessary to tow it, i get to take it to the beach in 2 weeks. Just trying to see if i have everything correct.

1. I place the Jeep in gear? (Man Trans)
2. How do i hook up the lights?
3. Which is a less expensive but good towbar?

Also the bolts would come loose on my tow bar, so I welded them after getting in correct position.
Flat tow Transfer case in neutral and transmission in neutral, key switched to unlock steering wheel

manual trans should be put in first gear. If the transfer case is in neutral then it wont matter what gear you put the trans in.
