banditman The window sticker should have the gear ratio on it.

daggo66 If you are buying a jeep and intend to tow, it would make sense to opt for the towing package.

MarkElliotG. Thank you John:

Wow, it's not been easy---seems that 3.8L/Manual, Two-Door X Model (4WD) can have either a 3.21 or 3.73 Axle (ratio). the first can tow 1000 lbs with 100 lbs Tongue Wt.---the latter, 2000 lbs with 200 lbs Tongue Wt.. (see Guide pics x 2 attached (PDF format)).

Now, I have to figure out which I have....3.21 or 3.73?

Jeep's website doesn't differentiate between the two axle ratio's---just states 2000 lbs. for 2001 Wrangler Sport. Too bad, it'll likely set customer expectations---and some Jeep buyers may make a purchase decision without realizing that what they get is a 3:21---pull up to 2000 lbs.---then pay the consequences. Yikes.

phottomatt OOPS! just noticed you live in Canada, might be different IDK, either way I would go by what your manual says.

phottomatt According to the chart in my owners manual (page 425) and my set up, it shows a 2000# limit (MTW) with a max 200# tongue weight. I will stick with the numbers in my manual, should be the same in yours (2 door manual 3.8).

MarkElliotG.'s Stated Towing Capacity - 2011 Wrangler Sport

Jeep's Website below states 2000 lbs. but other printed material published by Jeep states that it is 1000 lbs.?

Please confirm---is the website's 2000 lb. correct? Or, is it 1000 lbs.. I need to know for sure before planning the load and towing of a utility trailer.

Jeep - Compare Vehicle and Model Specifications - Highlights


Path that I followed on the Jeep website above:

2011 Models: Wrangler Sport

Additional Key Features: >> Engine/Transmission >> 6-Speed Manual Transmission / 3.8-Liter V6 SMPI Engine

Capacities/Weights: >> Towing Capacity - Maximum >> 2000 lbs.

Thank you for your efforts in helping me out.
