towing with a commander

while my dads been looking at a commander. im guessing it should be fine for towing a 4,000lb boat. Im just curious how people would think it would do flat towing a TJ or even towing one on a 16' flat bed trailer with brakes on both axle (think that would be pushing it, im kind of leaning towards that but am not sure)

just looking for opinions.



2000 TJ, flipped 300. HP60 w/3 link. 14 bolt leaf sprung. 107" wheelbase

I see no reason you can't.

Just bought a Hemi Commander rated to pull 7200#. Won't know until spring whether its good or not, but I traded in '03 H2 rated at 6500# and I had no problem pulling my 8000# boat on a twin axle trailer with surge brakes. Hoping the Commander will be as good if not better.
