And now we know why you have the towing package on both of them.

Give me about three weeks and you will see this photo. WK2 towing my 98 Wrangler based Rock buggy. Looking forward to seeing how the WK2 handles it. The buggy weighs about 3800lbs plus another 1500 for the trailer.

18' steel deck car hauler. I'm only guesstimating on the 1500 for the trailer weight but I have scaled the buggy.

Here's a pic of the WK2 and my trailer. The self leveling suspension is really cool. As soon as I hitched up and cranked the jack down the rear end started rising to compensate for the tongue weight. Pulled around about 50 miles today. Mainly just the empty trailer with a new front door on it. I am really impressed with the towing so far and can't wait to load my buggy on it. I think the WK2 is going to tow better than my F250 V8 gas work truck. It definitely is more comfortable and has more power +60 over the 5.4 in the F250. Will report back once I load the Buggy on it.
