Hey guys so i need to tow my 88 dl 4x4 ea82 5sp single range wagon from New mexico to California. I cant get a dolly so i will be flat towing it behind a uhaul. Is there anything i need to unhook or disengage so i dont tear it up. Am i fine just leaving it in neutral?

you can tow it on a dolly so long as the 4wd is not engaged. This is a part-time trans with no center diff. rear wheels just freewheel the same as if the care were driven in FWD.

if you ar eusing a towbar, you are good to go. leave the key in the car and unlock the steering. leave the trans in neutral.

I towed my brat from Seattle to Indiana with a tow bar. Flat tow, 2wd in neutral with the key in the ignition so the steering is unlocked, just like Miles suggested. Towed real nice, could hardly tell it was there.
