2011 Cherokee v6 towing?
 
I have a 2011 GC 4x4 with the Pentastar v6 that I intend to tow my Lund 18 foot boat with (about a 3000lb rig). My question is, since I don't have a tow haul button should I tow in 4th gear or drive? Almost all interstate.

I could on occasion be towing as far as 350 miles each way.

How easy is it to install a brake control? I need one for my Jeep but don't want to pay for labor LOL
