I'll admit I know basically nothing about the JT ( or much else to be honest) but have a question. I know part of the JKU's 3500 lbs. tow rating has to do with weight, wheel base etc. I recently pulled my aluminum trailer and ATV to TN from northern Indiana. It did fine with my 3.6 and 3.73's. However I got to thinking, power alone (not trying to stop) I couldn't imagine pulling close to 7,000 lbs with the power of my JKU, especially in the mountains I was in. Talking pulling ability alone will a JT with the same engine and gears pull any better then a JKU set up the same? My trailer and ATV both each weigh under 1,000 lbs and I had no trouble keeping it at 70-75, I'm sure if I had triple that weight it would be a different story. I also haven't looked at all the JT tow ratings, so maybe one with 3.73 gears doesn't have the same tow rating as the lower geared options.
