Talking 1st Trip Towing the Boat

Have read a little about the Nivomat Shocks etc. that Jeep uses if you order the Tow Package Group and Friday I towed my 21 foot Four Winns about 80 miles round trip for a day of skiing etc. I will have to say that I am impressed with the Jeep and how it feels and handles with around 3800 lbs behind it; (single axle trailer) the back end of the Grand Cherokee just stays "planted" compared to my 08 Trailblazer. I was not concerned about the V-6 having enough power but waiting for the 2014 with an 8 speed was a great decision because regardless of the hills or speed there always seems to be an appropriate gear WITHOUT having to get over 3500 to possibly 4000 rpms. Very, very pleased with the Jeep engineering! Dave
