I did not check the tongue weight on this load, but this is easily the largest load I've ever carried.
Due care was taken. I was not attempting to set any land speed records, and took care to leave a LOT of room for braking, not to mention the bumpy roads that I live on --- I did get passed by a street sweeper on one occasion.
The trailer DID do a little bit of pushing on the jeep, especially with the bobcat on there, but the point here is that the jeep did not really struggle in pulling this behemoth at ALL.
When I bought the WK2, I had an expectation that it would be put to WORK at times. Impressive things I've towed in the "heavy" department:
An enclosed car-trailer with a P-car
A utility trailer with 1.5 ++ yards of topsoil
...that same utility trailer with broken chunks of concrete (headed to the crush) that bent the axle on said utility trailer
Hickory logs to the saw mill (using the utility trailer...again)
Many (and I do mean several) trips to the landscape place to pick up retainer wall block (4klb per pallet) paver stones (near the same mass) one pallet at a time (still not sure exactly how that utility trailer's axle got bent....)
I do love this jeep. It doesn't tow every day, but when called upon to do so: there is nooooo problem with what I throw at it.
