Re: Added a tow hitch at dealer, question on towing capacity

But didn't the OP say he had the 4x4 Limited... I think I read that in the first post.... Oh and I did assume the OP was a USA model

Edmunds doesn't mention load leveling shocks for the RWD limited, but does for the 4WD. I don't think WK2 jeeps makes a differentiation.

The way manufactures rate towing capacity can be a mystery.

The RWD may have a lower center of gravity or comes standard with load leveling shocks, do you know?

I think it doesn't affect towing capacity (straight pull) just payload and max tongue weight. Jeep dealers used to have a tow book with loads of details.

Re: Added a tow hitch at dealer, question on towing capacity

I do have the 4x4 Limited and yes, it is a USA model. The dealer definitely did not add the load leveling shocks nor do I have a full spare, I basically got the OEM hitch added.

Thanks again for all of you guys' help.

Re: Added a tow hitch at dealer, question on towing capacity

Real question is how a 4400 lb 4x2 Laredo and a 5400 lb 4X4 Limited can be rated for the same MPG ?
