Default towing my 87 dodge raider

i am about to buy a 87 dodge raider v6 5 speed with a broken timing belt. ( don't worry the engine isn't shot, it is a non interference engine)

but my issue is that i have to tow the damn thing 166 miles back home.
what i need to know is, how do i tow it. the 4wd shifter has a neutral.. so wouldn't that mean it is tow-able on a car dolly? i would just throw it in both tranny and 4wd into neutral and head home?

i was also told to be safe i would just put the front tires on the dolly and remove the rear drive line completely and it would not do a damn thing wrong to it. that seems to be the safest way but it is just a little extra work to be done.

but what i am getting at is, i need wisdom on how to tow it.

also it needs tires and rims can any one help me with what other tires from other rigs will fit and work.

please and thank you

Trans in park so the tailshaft wont spin and t-case in neutral. If it were me i would remove the rear shaft. T-cases dont lube unless they are in gear. Did it make it home ok?
