Towing a boat

I have a question for you good folks. My new Jeep unlimited (2012) has 3:21 gears. Seems like it has lots of power and came with a factory tow option even with trailer wiring. Will my Jeep tow a 1,800 lb. package? That's the weight of everything, boat, motor and trailer. Thanks in advance for any reply.

The max tow for an unlimited is around 3500 pounds with a 350 pound tongue weight. Your all set.

If he has 3.21gears, he doesn't have the max tow package, just the regular tow package. The regular has a maximum of 2,000 lbs, I believe.
