Atlas transfer case exploded!

The Jeep is totaled.

Your Atlas Manual provides as follows:
Advance Adapters has flat-towed an Atlas equipped vehicle a distance of 300 miles and no problems were encountered. At this time, we can only recommend flat-towing at this maximum distance. After 300 miles of travel, the vehicle should be started. With the transmission in gear and the Atlas in neutral, let the vehicle idle for 5-10 minutes. This will circulate the oil in the Atlas and allow for proper lubrication.
If you are planning on flat-towing distances of 300 miles or more, we recommend the removal of the driveshafts to be on the safe side. This will prevent any damage that may occur to internal components due to the lack of normal oil circulation.
When a vehicle is being towed with the Atlas, both shift levers should be in the Neutral position. Our experience regarding the transmission towing position are as follows: (Please also verify in your owners manual what the vehicle manufacturer recommends)
Automatic transmissions should be left in park.
Manual transmissions should be left in any gear.

Flat towing with Atlas II
Don't want to start a thread about the pro's and con's of flat towing vs. trailering really, but...... if i don't end up getting a trailer by this summer i am wanting to flat tow to Colorado like i did last year with my other TJ. My "new to me" TJ has an Atlas II transfer case. I will check with Advanced Adapters on this, but was wanting to see if anyone here has some real world experience flat towing a rig equipped with an Atlas II. As far as disconnecting the driveshaft goes (if that's what i need to do), would i need to remove the front and rear or just the rear. Completely remove or just disconnect at the axle and tie up with wire? Thanks.
