regarding your comment:

"if the engine isn't running, the oil pump in the transmission isn't turning. For this reason, I would avoid extended flat towing"

If the transmission and t-case gears are not rotating what would be the problem with the oil pump not turning. Would the gears still need lubrication?
I'm asking because I'm considering extended towing of my 1994 D-90 and wouldn't want any damage

just disconnect your drive shafts at the pinion tie them up to the frame with rachet straps or bungee cords, no worries. I think it might be 12 bolts total.
