I am assuming that hauling the TJ on a trailer behing the JK would be too much weight. What are your thoughts?
1. How do you plan on stopping?
2. I tow a 2200lb. popup behind my JKU. This is too much for the 3.8, at least with an automatic. On the flatlands any sort of a hill or head wind causes the tranny to shift down to 2nd, about 4000 rpm. In the mountains I can't come close to doing the speed limit up the hills. Max speed is 35 mph in first gear, almost red lining it.
