WK and Timbrens and towing

My adult daughter is looking at using the '07 5.7L WK to haul the pony around.

She is thinking of a timbrens setup, which I know squat about.

Anybody here have any insight or advice?

Re: WK and Timbrens and towing

I have timbrens on my off road trailer that i tow behind my WK. The trailer pulls great on timbrens off road with a load. At highway speeds and on trails, empty...kind of a ratty ride. Timbrens also provide a lot of clearance, but may not be necessary for your application.

Re: WK and Timbrens and towing

I would look into sumo springs. Waaaaaay better than timbrens. Timbrens work but are hard as hell when theres no load.
