ZJ Towing Capability

I am 17 and have a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with the 4.0L I6 and automatic 42RE transmission.The ZJ has the towing package with wireing harness and consisting of 2'' reciever rated for 5,000lbs @ 750lbs tongue weight. It has 3.73 rear end ratio and stock sized P225/75/R15 tires. It also has the stock transmission cooler. I am about to take a vacation trip to Holiday World, which is about 180 miles/3 1/2 hours to drive one way.

I want to tow a pop-up camper down there in the next week or so and I am wonderin if I would be okay to do so with this vehicle. The camper i would estimate not weighing anything over 2500lbs (high estimate) with everything. Also would like to know if i could tow it in O/D because of the long drive and all the highway time i would be using.

Wondering about the towing ability of my ZJ

Go for it. You'll definitely know the trailer is there, and you'll have to drop out of overdrive for hills, but you'll be fine.
