Of course they do.

I knew there'd be one.

Re: Towing thread

What's the weight of the JK + trailer? How's the 3.0L do towing it?

Saw 2 EcoDiesels at the dealer yesterday, neither had a hitch. Pointless.

Re: Towing thread

Towing mirrors:
We have been very pleased with the Milenco Grand Aero mirrors. I'm towing a 26' travel trailer (4400 lbs dry, 5400 lbs loaded with no liquids) with a 2014 GC CRD.
The mirrors do not vibrate or make noise, they are easy as pie to install/remove, and have a large viewing area, almost as large as the vehicle mirrors.

We use the same mirrors. They worked well on our recent 2,700 mile trip with a camper about the same size.

Re: Towing thread

This is the only picture so far of the camper in tow. The Hemi did a great job on our trip. We didn't let a few electrical issues slow us down at all!

Re: Towing thread

I know it will often vary, but what are you guys using for amount of drop?

I'm looking to tow a 22 foot boat. Thanks!
