    I Want To Tow My K5 With A Tow Bar, But I Heard Thats Bad On The Tranfercase Because It Doesn't Get Proper Lubrication Without The Transmmision Powering It. How True Is This? I Want To Tow It About 600 Miles Round Trip.

    take off your rear drive shaft?
    but the lube thing, it spins either way, so i dont see how it gets better lube one way over the other
