2.5 L wrangler pulling 5000 lbs. !!!

Hi all

a friend just has a hitch put on his 2,5 l wrangler
from 1990 the approval tag says 5000 lbs.
i think that that goverment official that approved that
must have slept that day.
i wouldent drive that thing ,it would be a dangerus thing to drive with twice the weight pulled and short wheelbase and no HP.

i hope that heí wife dosen try to do that !!

That's what the hitch is rated at not what the jeep is rated at. Lots of hitches are rated for more then the truck they are bolted to are rated it, usually there is some sort of disclaimer saying never to excede manufactuer's towing ratings.
