Re: 2012 JGC & Towing
Factory tow not only includes the hitch receiver and electrical hookups, it also includes certain improvements to suspension (load leveling shocks), cooling, brakes and so forth. The actual composition of the package varies with the trim level and engine. A 3500 lbs towing limit is typical for a v6 vehicle without such improvements and not just with Jeep. Part of that is saying to you that you shouldn't have more than 350 lbs tongue weight. (US standards are typically 10%)
