Towing with 2.5

I bought a small 14' jet boat ( glorified jetski ). Would it be too much for my 2.5 to pull to the lake? Jeep has 3" lift and 33's.

Yes.


No.



Maybe.



I don't know, how many hills, is it auto or manual, what gearing, does the boat weigh a lot, how fast do you want to go, is it all highway?

Yeah, now that I think of it you should be able to, unless you cant.

It'll pull it but it Prolly won't be the best idea. I'd keep it under 50mph and no highway. And if your not geared properly it might wear on your rear end too.

I used to pull my buddies 70`s something boat (16' I think). It hated hills but it would work. Stopping was better than the S10 but the S10 pulled easier. Max weight you're allowed is 1500 IIRC.
