Flat towing a NP205

Hi, Just wondering if anyone had any experience in flat towing a jeep with a np205. Should I disconnect my driveshaft? Or will putting it in neutral suffice.
is it like the 300?

Re: Flat towing a NP205

even though i don't have a 205[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
i flat towed my np231 stock rig and disconnected both front and rear drivelines at the differentials and wired up from tucson to page.
this was after researching manuals and board discussion.
on the return trip i only disconnected the rear.
this was with trans case and tranny both in neutral.
my dad tows his 4wd nissan all over and never disconnects anything.
he does disconnect every few hundred miles and drive to lubricate.
my front driveline doesn't turn when in neutral so it doesn't need to disconnect.
4 bolts and a piece of wire and the rear is done.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
a little insurance is worth it?
oh yea and mark(punch) the yoke halves to put back same as recommended in manuals for balance purposes.
