Granted this all depends on the tongue weight of what you're towing...
Yes Scotts right never got a call from a single mid level customer and they do indeed retain OEM towing and that is a FACT.
Mids and Extremes the 2.8 Rear pulls a large boat with 3 passengers in the rear no problem.
We have the customer with the proof too. He ended up going mids because himself and 4 buddies go 3 days a week and the same bumps every day did bump but his boat is 32' and 5 people in the jeep he said he rather be in his Jeep than the diesel this is why he ended up going with Mids.
Until I see posts with people having issues with mids I call it all B Woody Hoopla and BS we would have gotten at least 1 call not to mention someone would have posed here already if their was any merit behind this claim.
So you can 110% tow with Mids and extremes just not with a 32' boat and 3 dudes in the back seat with extremes and this is all fact!!
Again I will find the pic on Instagram proving a boat tied to the Jeep and the Mid level no issue towing comment attached to it.
