Jk umlimited questions

Im soon going to start looking for a Wrangler Unlimited. I dont know much about them as capability goes. First of all, How well can they tow? I would only pull either a small trailer or a pop-up camper. Also, could i plow with it in the winters? This is an investment jeep for me and im planning to keep it for awhile, so i dont want to do anything that could hurt/damage the vehicle....

I have a 2011 Jeep Unlimited and I tow a 16' Aerolite Cub travel trailer. It pulls it just fine. I also have a 5x8 trailer for my quads and the Jeep pulls it like nothing!

Ok thats good. My concern was that because im getting an automatic, that pulling would either wear out the transmission or put stress on the motor. Its to my knowledge that the JKU's can easily pull atleast 3500LB without much trouble

The unlimited is a very capable vehicle. I was in Minnesota last winter and I saw someone plowing with it. I don't know much about plows, I live in Southern California. I have towed a 25KW generator with mine and it towed fine.

I agree that they are capable. I recently saw on youtube a guy plowing with a 2010 Unlimited sahara. He had a 7 foot BOSS plow and it looked like he didnt have any problems, and it was a pretty good amount of snow
