Towing help

Ok so I am getting out of the Marine Corps due to medical reason and I need some help. I got my 04 GC limited and I have been ripping through all of the threads and I have found a lot of info about towing but nothing that I can apply to my situation. I am renting a tow dolly from U-Haul to tow my 07 Acura TL Type-s to salt lake city then my wife will be driving it back home to Spokane. The trailer weighs 750lb and the car is about 3550lb there will be about 400 pounds in the car and about 500lbs ish in the jeep my biggest question is will she handle the drive. I have gone through the jeep bumper to bumper she's all lubed up aired up and tuned up. I know that my hitch says 750tw and 7500 max towing but what do I need to watch for? I have used it to tow my 2 jet skis. Then the random stuff here and there but I've never went this far towing something let me know what yall think. If I'm not giving her enough credit or how bad of an idea this will end up being thanks.

Personally, I would rent a flat bed, but it costs more.

With a tow dolly, the majority of the weight is on the axle of the car, and the dolly. I towed more weight than that for a further distance on my 96, went just fine. Keep your speed managable and you should be fine. Keep emergency tools and supplies in the jeep though, just in case.
