Re: What weight/length rv do you pull with your wj?

Here's mine. It's the only place where you can see it well and also get at the manual control in a hurry if you have to.

Thanks for the pictures ! I had assumed correctly that I will need to cut the back out of the cubby...sticking out the front like that would drive me insane. I plan on finishing it off with a custom bezel so it looks "factory"

Keep in mind mine is about as far back in as you can go with a P3 and still reach the manual control underneath. Also you can't go back much futher anyway because there's ductwork behind the compartment.

I just replaced my ashtray with the cubby ...I didn't see any ducts back.there but I didn't look too close either. The controller I have now is the older style (voyager) with a slide for manual operation.

You're welcome. Yes, at a minimum you will definitely have to cut a hole in the rear of the cubby for the wires. I suppose you could go all out and make the hole large enough for the controller to slide through. If you're going to permanently mount the controller it might be the way to go. I can't remember exactly how much available space there is behind the cubby. My controller is quickly removed so when I'm not using it, I'm not bothered by it.

Who here has towing experiences with the 4.0? Planning to tow a 3500 lb total trailer behind it this upcoming summer, we will see how it does.

I have a 2004 Overland w/ factory towing package (hydraulic cooling fan), Addco rear anti-roll bar, Up Country springs and shocks, Tekonsha P3 brake controller, and SuperChips w/ Tow tune. I don't experience a lot of sway because of my setup. But I'd imagine you would want some type of trailer sway control and load leveling with a tall, heavy camper behind you. I can run about 75 on the interstate with no issues or struggles from the Jeep. On flatland the trans will stay in 5th but will shift down to 4th on any long uphill runs. I average 12-13 MPG.

The P3 is a fantastic controller. I mounted mine in the center stack in the dash just between the seat heater switches. Perfect place for it. I can quickly and easily remove it when its not in use. The 'green' color option for the display is a really close match to the stock dash lights color.

This is exactly what I want to do (2650lb s2000), do you use any load leveling or just a standard ball?
