    JK As A Tow Rig?

    Hey Guys,

    Looking for a 4 dr (family) tow rig to pull my TJ on a trailer... Anybody using a 4dr JK to tow anything? Curb weight of a stock 4.0l TJ is 3400lbs and the 4dr JK can "Confidently" tow 3500lbs. I know that with a modded TJ and trailer that'll be over 3500lbs. Is that 3500 lbs under rated for the JK or can it pull more?

    PS the 2010 Surfer Blue Is Super Sexy!!!
