Re: Flat towing a Jeep Rubicon

The normal TJ tcase lubricates the bearings while the earlier YJ version did not.

Huh? Are you sure about this? I know the T-case was modified in '92/'93 so "neutral" didn't lock the front and rear axles together, but to my knowledge it still lubricated fine. Are you thinking of the D300?
The early YJ T-case, when in neutral, used to lock the front and rear driveshafts together, which put excess drag on the Jeep while flat towing it. It was modified so when in neutral, only the rear driveshaft rotated. Suzuki Samurai T-cases are the same as the old YJ design, despite bing gear driven, and it's a PITA as it loosens the driveshaft bolts over long distances. I prefer to just unhook the driveshaft when towing over 100 miles.
