I dont have any pictures of the wake with the 750's, it used to have 400's in the rear locker. I had trouble surfing unless there was a lot of people in the boat, so i bought the 750's and now move the 400's around the boat as needed. I'll try and get some pics of the wake next time I'm out.

I live on the water in MA so the x-star stays in the water most of the summer.

Nice looking JK. How does it feel towing the 205V w/ the Pentastar and 37's? I'm assuming you're running 4.88's?

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.

My tow rig is a PowerStroke'd 2010 F350. Running a 6" lift, 37's on 22's, H&S tuned and deleted, No Limit intake, and aFe exhaust are the big mods. I'm currently in the market for a CSX265 SS, so my truck is a little overkill for what I'm towing now...

New ride (boat)

Well, I sold my 06 X-15 which I miss, and being without a boat did not last long..... 2008 XStar, 6.0, 155 hours. Needs a clean up from the trip to Fargo. But safe in the shop till I can get out for a ride.
