Re: OT-NEW TOW VEHICAL
Yea, right. Did you notice the kenworth parked at the truck stop? Do you think it weighs more than its trailer?
What you need is to properly equipe the tow vehicle. If you plan on flat towing, YES, the vehicle should weigh more that the trailer just to keep from being pushed around. If, however, you trailer the jeep, equipe the car and trailer with an equilizer hitch, brakes, and have at it. Not sure, but make sure that "tow vehicle" does NOT have unibody construction. You need a solid frame for hitch mounting.
When I was younger, I towed a 5000# camp trailer about 20,000 miles over 4 years with a 3200# plymouth fury with the 383. Great tow vehicle!
