I have 08 unlimited, auto, 4x4, k&n cold air intake, superchip programmer, modified exhaust. Looking to tow a 18' pontoon boat with a weight of 2000lb. So I'm looking for anyone who has towed something of similar weight and shape. And if it's going to be a problem? Thanks in advance!
I recently bought a highwall Chalet A-Frame pop-up, a little over 2000# loaded. I don't even know it's back there (just kidding, but it seems everyone says that). I definately know it's back there, but it has been a surprisingly easy tow and I don't have the electric brakes connected yet. Haven't been up the local mountains yet, but through the hills it holds 65 mph fine downshifting in the 3-4k rpm range (auto) on the steeper ones. With a single axle and standard hitch I thought it would bounce the back end some, but it doesn't.
In south Texas we have constant wind, going toward the coast and wind pushing on the way back. Maybe if a put a cover over it when towing will lessen the drag. Maybe a wind deflector on the hardtop may help. Removable of course!
