I am thinking about buying a jeep wrangler to use as a backup to my Ford F250. I would also use it to plow snow. I just wonder how well it would pull. I have an 18' trailer with two zero turns and a 48" walk behind on it.
Wranglers are only rated to pull 2500lbs.With it being a short wheelbase,you'll have problems stopping as well as swaying.
A Grand Cherokee or Liberty would do fine though.The Liberty is rated at 5000 lbs.,but harder to lift due to the IFS.All other Jeeps have solid front axles.
And you aren't over the 2000lb( I was wrong.Thought it was 2500) towing capacity with what you listed.He's talking about 2 Z mowers and a walkbehind on an 18' trailer.
Not that a TJ can't do it,but it's unsafe.Not to mention what your insurance company would say should you have an accident and you're beyond your vehicles towing capacity.
