The issue is the Transmission fluid pump is on the front side of the tranny (engine side). that way when your sitting at a light, and half the tranny isnt moving, the other half is, and the fluid is flowing. Now when your in neutral and being towed, the rear half of the transmission is turning, but not the front half. Hence the fluid pump is not turning, and there is no lubrication.
Some auto vehicles dont do this, and can be towed...but most cant, and certainly not ours. Another trick is to put the T-Case in neutral, and that would have worked up to '05....but the 2nd gen turn nob does not have a neutral setting. I swear our old QX4's did....
