|jeepwayoflife||Do not go over 2000. Its not about power, the engine and drivetrain have plenty of power to pull a heavier load. Its the short wheelbase that makes it dangerous. I would never tow anything over 2000 lbs but trailer brakes would make it safer. I have heard a few people tow 3,000 with trailer brakes. Also know that a 4.0 with 5speed can tow more than a 4.0 automatic, and obviously a 2.5 too. What do you have? I towed a ~1,300 pound trailer to Tahoe from the bay area (4.5 hours) with my 4.0 and didn't have too many problems towing it, it was the stopping that was hard.|

What do you want to tow?
How heavy is it?
The real problem is your short wheel base towing heavy/long trailers.
The tail really can wag the dog with a Jeep.
Brakes, as in the trailer better have them, because your Jeep won't be able to slow anything heavy without them. Can you spell "Jacknife"

How can I achieve more towing power on my 2000 jeep wrangler sport without dumping a bunch of money into it??
