What are you towing?
 
I know there have been threads in other sub forums and I can't find the old wk towing thread. Here is a new one.

Please list: WK year and engine; any suspension modification ( for ex a lift, air bags or load leveling shocks etc) trailer tongue weight and total trailer weight.

Thanks

2007 Diesel all stock except for Monroe Load Levelers. The dump trailer weighs about 2000 lbs I believe. We've towed all different weights.

What's in the hauler?

It depends on the day. Some days its a 565whp honda, others its an AWD Mitsubishi eclipse.
Shortly it will be filled with snowmobiles.

I agree. FWD and RWD are useless for fast street cars. Roommate has the civic and it still throws down some impressive times on slicks. We have a few awd street cars in the group that are well into the 9's but the fwd will forever be stuck in the 10's because of traction.
