towing safety

Interested in getting a 2004-2006 Wrangler but Unlimiteds are hard to find.
Hope to tow about 2500 pounds once in a while.
Would go up and down a boat ramp and go at most 40 miles at 40 mph where there a no hills and few turns. Usually would go less 2 miles at 25-30 mph.

Is that dangerous in a shorter wheelbase Jeep (not an Unlimited) ?
