How to tow an M416 with an automatic?
Hopefully this is in the right spot. I have an old m416 military trailer that I am planning on pulling with my lifted 2000 Wrangler Sport and have a couple of questions about the actual pulling. I have the 3 speed auto transmission, so should I just pull in drive? I have a van with a 4 speed auto transmission also and when I've pulled the trailer I was told to pull in 3 and not drive. I really don't want to screw up the transmission by pulling in the wrong gear. Also, the m416 is a pretty small trailer, do I need a transmission cooler to pull, or is the transmission beefy enough to handle it without? Thanks in advance for any and all help!
