Thanks for the responses. I understand the wheelbase issues with towing, I'm not worried about that, I've towed similar weight and size with my old YJ without an issue, actually did better than my tacoma but not by much with 3.07 and 31's.
Also not too concerned with stopping as I'll be reasonably under the towing limit and will be limiting tire size to close to rubicon stock. The concern is the power. Right now to get to my friends house which is admittedly on a mountain, though a nice paved road, I have to take the hill in 2nd gear with my foot to the floor if I have any hope of making it. If I want to go to my dads to wash it I have to take all backroads because it won't do 65 on the highway.
Been looking at trucks, crazy money they want for them now, plus saving for a house. Not wanting something used for various reasons. Had Jeeps, loved them, they rusted out and I was forced to sell them. The price difference between new truck and new jeep is significant enough to have me looking again at the Wrangler. Was planning on a V8 truck, just looking to see if a 3.6 Jeep will be powerful enough for what I need. Looking for people who tow with theirs regularly and how they do.
