What are you towing?

I know there have been threads in other sub forums and I can't find the old wk towing thread. Here is a new one.

Please list: WK year and engine; any suspension modification ( for ex a lift, air bags or load leveling shocks etc) trailer tongue weight and total trailer weight.

Thanks

Re: What are you towing?

2007 Diesel all stock except for Monroe Load Levelers. The dump trailer weighs about 2000 lbs I believe. We've towed all different weights.

It depends on the day. Some days its a 565whp honda, others its an AWD Mitsubishi eclipse.
Shortly it will be filled with snowmobiles.

I agree. FWD and RWD are useless for fast street cars. Roommate has the civic and it still throws down some impressive times on slicks. We have a few awd street cars in the group that are well into the 9's but the fwd will forever be stuck in the 10's because of traction.
