Can you clarify this:
"It's the "may not" and not the "can not" that gets you into trouble."

Thanks

The jeep CAN tow a bunch of weight. 7,000 lbs. didn't bother my Liberty CRD at all. The JK is built more rugged, so it can tow even more.

But just because you can doesn't mean you may. Legally you have to stick to what's in the owners manual.

My favorite quote from the press release.. sad but true: "Chrysler claims its products, especially the Jeeps, can handle all sorts of terrible conditions, churning through muddy swamps, climbing mountains, and crossing rivers. Turns out they cannot even handle a car wash."

I got rid of my JK because it couldn't tow the teardrop effectively.
It was fine going downhill...
