4 door with towing package is rated to 3500lbs..
The 2 door frame/engine/drive train can handle the weight, it is because the shorter wheel base and lighter weight of the vehicle makes it more unstable with weight behind it is why the difference.

If you have 3.73 gears (which is likely if the towing package is factory installed) its 2000lbs.. if you have the 3.21 gears the tow rating is 1000lbs.

page 334 in the owner's manual
