Since I live on the water the boat doesn't get towed much, usually only a half mile from my house to the boat launch on my pond. However, this picture was from a recent trip to Maine and I'll tell you what, it was not very fun. I am actually running 4.10's with a 6-speed manual. The jeep has plenty of power to pull the boat but stopping it is another story, if the trailer didn't have the disc brakes I wouldn't have even bothered towing the boat up there. On the highway I stayed right around 60-65 mph and it was pretty manageable. Also on that trip with all the camping gear, my 2 dogs, etc I was definitely over the tow capacity. We are replacing our mini cooper with another SUV soon (LR4, or Grand Cherokee most likely) that will be more up to the task of towing.
