Towing Capacity

Hello everyone, we have a 2008 Unlimited Sahara with the towing package. It says it is rated to two up to 3500lbs. We have a 17.5 ft bayliner boat that weighs 2400 lbs including the trailer. That is dry weight, but with all gas and equipment I believe we are still under 3500lbs, so things should be fine. I am just curious if any of you tow a boat with your Unlimited (staying under the max capacity), and how it goes. We currently have a Durango that we use to tow, but I am thinking of trading that in (2 gas hogs for vehicles are going so well right now, and my wife LOVES the jeep!). Thanks for any input.

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.
