whitebuffalo 2wd usually have higher tow ratings (since the truck weighs less) but the springs are sometimes a little softer. you'll be fine. i usta pull mine all over the place on my 16' flatbed behind my dodge half ton (360/auto) 4x4. hell, we loaded a suburban on that trailer and pulled it behind my dads ford 1/2 ton (302/auto).

like said above, make sure you laod it with the weight of the jeep mostly over the axles (slightly forward) and strap it good. you wont have any problem.

It also depends on where/how far you are towing it, but the difference between 4x4 and 4x2 is negligible, unless of course you have to pull it out of a hole first! I towed a 24 Crownline w/ a 4x2 F-150 fm Toledo to upstate NY a few years back, other that the gas gauge, we hardly knew it was back there! Make sure you center it over the trailer axle and strap it down good! Also, you should try to make sure the trailer tounge is as level as possible, it'll roll w/ less swaying, bucking, etc...

jeeperman You should be fine as long as the truck is rated to tow the weight of the Jeep and trailer. 2 wheel drive trucks tow as well as 4x4's, so if that's what is available to you, go for it!

Trail Rated Nurse Thanks. I don't quite understand how to navigate here.:o This is my first forum. The only online communication i have experienced is classroom chat rooms at my small college.

Pulling my Jeep

I have a 06 TJ unlimited. Do I need a 4x4 truck to pull the trailer that my Jeep will rest on after getting busted on a rock? I think a 2x4 F-150 Ford will suffice, but my father-in-law seems to think we need bigger.
