Anybody tow a boat?
99 xj with 31s and the 4.0 165k. I wanna buy a bayliner capri, I think it weighs about 2000 pounds with gas and gear. I know it should be fine, truck has power and torque to boot but I live in utah. Elevation is about 5000 feet and most lakes are up in the mountains. Anybody have some experience with something like this?
my dad use to tow a 19' searay all the time when i was younger. id say with 31s youll be fine. just dont be driving like a racecar lol

I'd put in a tranny cooler and make sure the trailer has brakes. I pull about 1000 lbs on 235s with the tow package and its about the most I'd feel comfortable with without trailer brakes. Your stopping distance increases quickly even on the flats. Good time to be buying a boat though. enjoy!
