Towing Package

Poking for a towing package that fits my 2011 Sport Unlimited that matches the manual specs of just over 7900 lbs. jeep parts department only has a 3500 lb. towing package. What's up with that ?

Hello,

I am sorry there is no Mopar hitch that exceeds a 3500lb towing capacity. Only part number 82210230 is available.

How can I improve my towing capacity to 3500lbs if my Jeep is rated for 2000?

My guess would be the 7900 is the max vehicle weight rating.. which I think is the weight of the thing being towed and the weight of the jeep...

To get to 3500lbs... you would need to add the proper hitch.. gears, cooling and wire harness, not sure what else.
