I love the way the rides look lowered using Eibach springs. For the folks who have lowered there Jeep are you towing anything at all or folks who have the experience, have any suggestion what I can do ...I've a 19 foot boat and would be awesome if I can too lower the jeep and also be able to tow my boat around when I need to around.

Bumping an old thread as I'm wondering the same thing as the OP. Looking to get a 2006 Limited and I eventually I'd like to do some lowering with it if I end up buying it. I have a 4100lb camper trailer that I use twice per year and I'm wondering about bottoming out the rear suspension if I lowered it.
Depends on the springs used. Many lowering springs especially those from Eibach arent as stiff as the OEM and suffer from coil bind and bottoming out.
Not good on a road course and probably not good for towing.
Get some airlift 1000 air bags that go inside the coil spring. That way you can be lower and then when u want to tow just add some air. The airlift 1000 only cost around $90.00 and u can 5-35 psi in them. At 5 psi in my truck there is no ride difference. If I'm not mistaken they are rated for 500 lbs each so in total you theatrically you have the ability to haul an extra 1000 lbs and you won't be bottomed out. Obviously the airbags will not increase you towing or hauling capasity but will assist with a weaker rated lowered spring.
Yeah, this is something I have wondered myself! I have a 2wd limited Hemi powered Grand and I would love to level the rear to the front but still be able to tow. I have a car hauler to tow my other toys with.
