I have a 2003 Wrangler and have a trailer I am going to be towing with it that weighs around 1000lbs. I have a bit more than 1000lbs of gear to haul (I'm guessing around 2500lbs total). I know that the Wrangler is rated to only tow 2000lbs, so I'm wondering if adding electronic brakes to the trailer will effect my towing capacity (i.e. would let me carry up to 2500lbs safely with the Wrangler?)
The trailer in question is an Echo ESS-9-13, as seen here:
SS DELUXE TRAILER
Echo sells brakes for this trailer that are rated up to 3500lbs, here:
Trailer Electric Brakes
So what do you guys think?
