Jeep Wrangler: Recreational Towing — Four-Wheel Drive Models / Shifting Into (N) Neutral

Use the following procedure to prepare your vehicle for recreational towing:

WARNING!

You or others could be injured or killed if you leave the vehicle unattended with the transfer case in the (N) Neutral position without first fully engaging the parking brake. The transfer case (N) Neutral position disengages both the front and rear driveshafts from the powertrain, and will allow the vehicle to roll, even if the automatic transmission is in PARK (or manual transmission is in gear). The parking brake should always be applied when the driver is not in the vehicle.

  12. Shift the transmission into PARK or place manual transmission in gear (NOT in NEUTRAL).
