i ussually just put the tcase in neutral and the tranny in second... but i only tow 100 miles one way ussually... since you'll be going a long way, i would just remove the rear shaft, especially since you'll have more than enough help to put it back on once you get to attica... you should be able to just remove it from the axle and then wire it up somewhere under the body to keep it out of harms way... make sure you unlock the hubs so the front tires can spin independant... also make sure you have the key in the ignition... doesnt have to be in the ACC position, just turn the key on, and then off again without removing it and the wheel will stay unlocked
let me know if you have anymore questions

You can disconnect the rear driveshaft, stick the tcase in neutral, unlock your front hubs, put the tranny in 2nd gear, and leave the key in the ignition to keep the steering wheel unlocked.
Do some practice towing around your neighborhood before you get out on the real road. Also remember you cannot back a flat towed vehicle, and be careful on sharp turns since the ZUK has to track the tow vehicle and the ZUK wheels can jackknife the setup.
As per SUZUKI you can flat tow up to 200 miles with the drive shaft in. But I have a GRSII with the two low kit and it's only 4 bolts and 5 min to disconnect the drive shaft, I'd rather do that then possibly crap out my $1200 T-case.
There's also the added benefit that you won't rack any more miles while it's in tow. I've recently picked up a tow dolly and noticed that with the tcase in neutral and the tranny in 2nd, it still put miles on the ODO. I plan on disconnecting the rear shaft for anything more than 100 miles one way.
