    How much can weight can that thing tow? Been looking at tow rigs for a bit and I thought 1500s or 150s wouldnít be enough to tow a Jeep on a trailer. Am I way off on that?

    You are behind the times is all.

    There has been a capacity war in the "half ton" class.
    Ford says up to 13,200 towing, depending on how it is equipped.

    I had a Ram 1500 diesel, it was rated for 9,900, and would do it with ease, and get 20 mpg doing it.
    That said, I'm not sure how much more I would want behind one, based on handling and stopping ability.

    Well I didnít know that. Iíve only been looking at 250 or 2500 Diesels thinking that was my only option.

    Even some of the gas 1/2 tons are rated for 10-11k. Take a 6k jku, 2k trailer and still close to or under the limit. Just remember itís half ton and donít try to set any land speed records.

    Thanks man, maybe that makes the possibility of a tow more real, 1/2 gas trucks are cheaper than diesels. What the hell am I gonna do?!?!? Trying to get a tow rig and engagement ring at the same time ainít easy. Tow rig may have to go on the back burner for a bit. Damn it!

    It would get 29 driving 65 or so, 26 at 80.
    The time I was able to tow something heavy where I could weigh it, fill up, and did a +/- 200 mile round trip loaded both directions, and fill up again when I got back it came out right at 20. That was running from Irwindale to Palmdale and back, so up the grade by Wrightwood on 138. On the steep part it dropped to 45, but the rest of the trip was at 55.

    The max rating is 9900#, the trip I measured the trailer was about 9500#, that is a 3500# trailer and a 6000# excavator bucket. A rebuild one out, and a worn one back.

    Thatís why Iím looking at 1/2 tons in the next year or so. I would love a diesel but I donít want to pay the price for even a 10+ year old diesel. Not to mention the cost of maintenance.

    As far as ring or truck. I mean, I truck is going to give you new possibilities and a nice ride when the jeep breaks. The ring is going to cost you a hell of a lot more cash in the near future. Just think of what you could do to the Jeep with that money

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
