The dealer has told me that if I get an ANTISWAY, the braking system and a 4000lb hitch that I would be ok. It all makes me nervous as I am a new tower.
The antisway, the braking system, nor the 4000lb hitch will do anything to boost the factory 2000 lb towing limit specification on the Jeep. Not only that, but those towing limits are set with one 150 lb driver and no gear in the Jeep. Anything extra that is carried is to be subtracted, including the weight of the hitch, receiver, etc.
If Jeep thought that the towing spec should be higher, they would have made it higher....higher tow ratings help sell vehicles. It is that low because a Jeep with it's short wheel base is not safe to tow heavy loads especially in panic situations. Even being careful, you never know when someone else might cut you off. I would advise against it.
