I wouldnt do it with a 2 door. The 4 door I would do it but drive slow and allow for plenty of room. I read in europe the tow rating for the 4 door is close to 6k pounds, it just has to do a lot about regulations here in the states.

It's the idea of trying to pull a 20' power boat or fully loaded pop-up camper that should rightly scare the 2-door guys.
I've attached this camping trailer for thousands of miles, with only one issue, unrelated to weight and the Jeep (tire came off at 60MPH).
What Jeep do you have? JK? JKU? Tow PKG?
I tow a 2000lb race car & 1100lb. dual axle trailer (with trailer brakes). I also safely tow a 2800lb tent trailer (with trailer brakes) which is prolly 3300lbs when packed, loaded & ready to roll. BUT... I DO USE a trailer brake controller.
