Agreed on all accounts, I prefer Auto to Snow, but use Sand/Mud for the fun stuff.

Congrats on the December TJOTM win.
Dumpster would look real nice riding behind a WK2.

Mine is a 5.7L 2011 Overland, one of few that's got coils instead of the air ride system. Tow package gives it load leveling shocks in the back.
It's got 20x9" SRT8 reps I got at the PA Jeep Show from the Quadratec tent.
Tires are Cooper Zeon LTZ in a 275/55/20.
It will absolutely bully this trailer around, even with the TJ on it. The Hemi barks pretty loud on a onramp and it has no problems merging.
The ride when towing isn't as solid as a full size truck, but there isn't as much wiggle as you would think.
Braking is great with the trailer on, loaded or not. I am considering the SRT8 front brakes though, I drive it spirited and there's noticeable brake fade.

Thanks for the info on towing the TJ... Likely going to pickup a 2014 Overland next week and still hadn't decided for sure on 3.6L vs. 5.7L, but towing the TJ on a flatbed, like you have in the pic there, might be one of my use use cases. I have a '03 Tahoe that I tow some behind now, and it's acceptable, but don't plan on it running forever, so the possibility of towing behind the new GC is very interesting and would obviously lead me more towards the 5.7L.

I can confirm what "WKdeuce" is saying, My 2011 Laredo with the Hemi pulled my previous car on a flatbed through town and highway 400 km's +\- with no issues at all averaging 16.5l / 100K with Tow Haul on of course. Levilling Kit would've been nice to have though as she sat a little low.

To you guys with the 275/55/20. If you go off road and hit some ditches or sand and other road that will make the car bounce somewhat will that be a problem with rubbing, etc. Thanks.

Yes. Light inner fender rubbing.
I get light rubbing on mine, but it's coil, not air ride. Maybe if you could crank the ride height up a bit it's not an issue.

No issues with Air Suspension. I've had mine in some pretty crazy spots and have had no issues with rubbing.
