    Cool thread... I was just talking about this today... I would like to flat tow mine a couple times a Year with a rental RV:
    1. Can I hook up directly to an EVO 1/4 bumper?
    2. What is the best tow kit to buy?
    3. Is there a specific wiring kit I need?
    4. Does the Rv need to have special wiring? Meaning a rental will not be equipped...?

    Sorry for all the questions... Thanks

    1. You need a spot on your evo 1/4 to attach mounts, Check out Rock Hard, they make specific mounts for various brands of tow bars
    2. I use Demco, works great, been using their products for 10+ years behind 2 different motorhomes
    3. Jeep sells a kit #82211156AB that plugs into existing wiring harness under dash for brake/turn/running lights
    4. If the RV has a trailer towing package then u can pull your jeep as long as the RV has a combined rating to do so

    On 1. If you have d ring mounts on your Evo 1/4, you could do what I did. I bought a tow bar that has adjustable arms and adapters to mount the bar to the d ring tabs. I have the warrior products adapters.

    Not sure on the others as I have a wireless brake light setup and just tow the cj around with that.

    Make sure towing is permitted by the rental company upfront. A lot of them do not allow this. I looked into a rental a couple years ago and ran into this.

    I bought the '15 JKU to tow behind our motorhome when we retired

    2012 Newmar 38' Dutch Star.

    Took it on a 4 month trip and really enjoyed having the jeep. Big Bend, Tucson, Death Valley, Mt Ranier in the snow to name a few places

    We decided to downsize the RV and got a Roadtrek Sprinter based. It could tow the Jeep but the tow capacity is 5000 lbs, too close to the Jeep weight, especially when we go across the Rockies. It also had some persistant electrical issues.

    We just traded the Roadtrek for a Dynamax Isata 5. Built on a Ram 5500 chassis. Cummins power and 10000 # towing. We won't get until late spring, plan on going to Moab on our first big trip.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
