Re: towing jeep--need more hp or torque?

3/4 ton Suburbans are probably as good as it gets for towing light to med. wt. trailers. I'm towing with a 2500 pickup 350/700r with overload bags and it has worked great for 12 years, I wouldn't want to tow much with less truck tho. ...fwiw, the jeep weighed around 5200 the trailer 2200 and I'd put about 1000 lbs. of tools/parts in the bed of the truck, Once I put the harley on the trailer tongue also, it had plenty of power but, that was a lot of tongue weight and it was hard to keep the front tires gripping thru the turns and exit ramps... : 0
