Re: Ot looking for a camper a TJ with a 2.5 can pu
Don't take offense, but I wouldn't pull sqat with a 2.5 and I think unless stock or properly regeared most tj's with a 4.0 arent up to it.. While most would say that this is off topic, I would have to say nope, cause there is no camping trailer that should be pulled behind a 2.5
For 3 years we pulled a lightweight 4x8 trailer loaded half with wood and half with gear, all said there was likely less than 700lbs including trailer. With stock gears and tires I could run 65, but every time I hit a gap in the pavement the rear of the jeep jumped sideways and the fishtailing started. Later after a 3 inch lift and 32 inch tires, Can't get the same load to 60mph, and it walks all over.
Take it or leave it, but that engine is almost underpowered for the jeep let alone trying to pull something with it.
