Friend has a Volvo V50 with a 1.8, IIRC it is rated for ~1400kg ( = close to 3000 lbs.).
You do have to remember that when towing, basically all countries in Europe use a speed limit of 80km/h (50mph) or 100km/h (60mph) depending on the type of trailer. Any trailer weighing over 750kg must have trailer brakes.

Did your insurance has ra record of what your ZJ's equipment and upgrades before it was stolen?
I just added brush guard, roof rack, ltd sound system, hitch mounted swing out tire carrier and step bars. I wonder if I should have inform my insurance of these add ons

Mopar radiator, cap and valvoline coolant replacement. Fixed the rearview mirror ( it was loose because of sun heat). I am planning to add Kool-it coolant treatment. Any experience or thought?

Fulfilled Costco's Battery Warranty!
To think I originally purchased the battery and warranty back in 2014. I managed to pick up a new bat in 2017, and then today it was time! Obviously they had discrepancies in their system, but Im not complaining. and Im prepared to actually pay 3-4 years from now!
Mind you the Jeep was stolen last March 2019, and recovered 3 weeks later. Thank gawd! It was drive-able, so insurance came through to give me as much as I could without salvaging the betty-beast.
in the passed year:
new back seats, new headlights and tail lights, new rear dif and rear axles, new (bumpin) radio, replaced keylock cylinder and ignition coil, got the AC repaired, new tires, new glove box...
shes still a work in progress but runs like a beast at 260k+!!
more photos to come

Installed the IRO belly skid and a Hayden 679 trans cooler. Got a few smaller things left on the to-do list but should be good enough for a shakedown run.

Getting Ready For A Trip To Boston
I need to make a business trip to Quincy, MA. Due to current Covid condition, I plan to sleep in my ZJ; so, I built a hitch mount tire carrier to move the spare out of the cargo area. Added step bars, roof rack, brush guard and Ltd hood. Painted the grill and vent to match the LTd wheels. Also replaced the radiator fan with the plastic fan (California edition??) with extreme duty clutch. A/C still cold while sitting under 91 degree Florida sun.
Still thinking if I should paint the vent with bedliner.
