Sorry for my slow reply on the posts about my Wrangler. It is a 2012 with the factory tow package. I'm glad to be reading these posts after towing it around town! Sounds like I was playing with fire. I didn't have any problems with it but after towing it learned that the 2011 X2s are actually over 4000 lbs by themselves so with the trailer I was over 5 k and thus well over the 3500 lbs limit of my rig. Opps. Guess that's the last time I'll do that. Thankfully my wife has a bigger car coming which is much better suited even though it won't match as well (while SUV).

Bottom line: towing an X2 with a Wrangler is probably a bit dangerous

Happy holidays everyone.

There's artwork on here to take to a vinyl to get the colors you want...and if you're local I have lot's.

If you want something special artwork wise that's not there let me know... I am going to make some of the more modern decal art.

The one thing that I didnt like about the Raptor, was the lack of power compared to my Duramax. So, I threw a Rouscharger on it

I am sure it still won't tow as good, but should be good enough!
