Hauling with a 4 cyl would be rough. The 4 cyl jeeps are strange. Mine has plenty of power and I go 70+ on the interstate, another guy at work has a newer / less milage 4 cyl and he has to down shift all the time and has a hard time even keeping his 4 cyl above 60 mph.
I do some minor hauling, I have a john boat with a 15 HP on the back and my 4 banger pulls that just fine. I also have a small trailer that I load wood / deer / random junk but never more than a few hundred pounds. Anything more than minor hauling and you will need the 6 cyl and some of the 4 cyl I have been in couldnt haul anything.
