I would remove the rear drive shaft if your traveling any length of distance. My '72 3spd transfer case turned the front drive shaft while in neutral if towed. Seemed like a lot of unneccessary wear on seals, etc. Its just 4 bolts and your safe either way. You might also check you alignment and make sure you have slight toe-in. This has been discussed many times before.
