Problem is still the fact the 2013 Brochure on page 4 3rd paragraph over and 1 down.

Quote: TORQUE TO TOW Wrangler Unlimited can confidently tow up to 3,500 lb when properly equipped with the factory installed Trailer To Group

Jeep also defines what makes up the Trailer Tow Group.

Trailer Tow Group
The available Trailer Tow Group includes a Class II receiver hitch, 4-pin adapter, Dana 44 heavy-duty solid rear axle and 3.73:1 axle ratio (deletes rear tow hook, if equipped).

Unfortunately Jeep messed up language in the brochures and manuals. You really need to dig into the details
And usually any trailer over 2k is going to be equipped with brakes. So a 4 pin harness is useless. It is for lights only. You would need a brake controller (i.e. 7 pin harness) for the brakes. And IMO a WD hitch set up is needed to level out the load. I have 60 springs in the rear and still experience a reverse rake without the WD. My tongue weight is 320#.
But with all of that, the 13 has absolutely no problems. Plenty of power.

Old story....the owners manual is incorrect. Has been incorrect since the 3.6 came out.

If you look at that chart, you will notice that 3.21's with an auto isn't listed. That is because prior to 2012 (intro of the 5 speed auto and 3.6), there was no such thing as an auto with 3.21's. That chart is from the 2007-2011 models. Jeep still hasn't updated it.

All 2012-13 2 doors can tow 2000 pounds, regardless of tranny or axle ratio.

The whole tow rating, max/tow thing has been a mess with Jeep.
