    I have 4-door 2020 Wrangler Unlimited (JL). With the towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, what's the downside of towing above that limit on short trips? I have a enclosed car trailer (@2,700 pounds) and a Model A (@2,300) pounds that I'd like to take to events within 50-60 miles. Will it be...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2011 2 door JK. I want to tow a small motorcycle 200 miles. I was wondering if this is safe or even a feasible option with a 2 door. What equipment would I need other than a hitch receiver? Are there any other special things I should take into consideration? Thanks!

    Greetings! First post to the forum ... I know this topic has been written about and discussed ad nauseam, but I'm getting so much conflicting info ...

    I notice all the wiring kits require a hot wire ran to the battery. What is the reason for this, does anyone know? My jeep has traditional halogen tail lights and my trailer has LED's. Not sure why the wiring would need the extra power from the battery.

    Hi all, I'm new so forgive me if this has come up and I missed it. I recently purchase a small light weight ( < 1000lbs loaded) off road trailer and noticed that when towing it at freeway speeds, the front of my jeep tended to feel like it was floating a bit. I haven't measured the rear sag...

    Hi — I’ve had my 2001 TJ Wrangler since it was new. I’ve been all over in it but it only has just over 100K miles on it and thought I’d like to travel more with it. In fact, since I’m a retired widow, I’ve decided to sell the house and buy a camper and just drive all over the country! The...

    After years of casually looking for a camper, I found one that was too good to pass up, less than a mile from home. I did some research, mostly here at WF, when I was looking to see what my TJ could handle. I thought I'd be oaky with this one, but after getting some comments from others, both...

    I'm looking to regear my 2017 JKU from a 3.21 to a 3.73 strictly for towing purposes. I don't currently plan to but larger tires on but if I do in the future, I wouldn't go higher than 33's. I am moving to Alaska and will be towing a 5 x 8 cargo trailer with me. The trailer itself weighs 1,000...

  14. Ontario
    Hi everyone, I've seen tons of Jeeps on the road without doors in Ontario so I think I'll be fine there, however does anyone know the rules about towing a trailer and doors? It's only a small 7' trailer but I was wondering if anyone know if I'll get stopped towing and also having no doors?
