Default Flat towing CJ automatic question

I see this has been covered for various models but haven't found anything specific for what I need.

I am looking at flat towing my CJ7 (quadratrac,auto). Does anyone have any experience with this application or know where I can find information.
I was just going to attach the tow bar, shift the transmission in neutral and call it good. I just wanted to flat tow for short distances, maybe 50 miles or so.
Any input???

THANKS

Google "Quadratrac flat tow" and you'll find some reference material to read in order to understand why.
