BravoHere's the deal, a man with honor and integrity goes out of his way to protect the people around him. Especially those that can not protect themselves. That includes not doing something questionable that may hurt that lady jogging down the road, or the kids in the car next to you. The prospect is already questionable and discussed on an open forum. The consenses is no. So now what happens if you ignore the owners manual. And our advise on an open forum? And something happens? Even a pathetic excuse of I didn't know it would be unsafe is out the window as your sitting in court trying to look into the eyes of possible victims. This isn't directed at the OP personally. But to anyone who comes along and reads this later and goes yeah but my jeep is awesome. And it's flat road, and I have the worlds best brakes . And any other excuse you can come up with to tow something outside of the capabilities of the jeep. Getting it done properly is cheaper than the alternative even if it doesn't seem like it at first. Just don't try it.
