    Agreed on the 1/2 ton being easier, but if your towing thru the mountains you are going to need a lot more towing capacity. I don’t believe the 1/2 ton will bandit with out overheating.

    I mean spring and axle weight ratings that it will never see. Knowing you yours will see “overboard” weights from time to time.

    I have a 20' dovetail that I tow my 2dr with my 16' F150. My truck has max tow package but still has the 6 speed transmission and the 3.5 ecoboost. My Max tow cap is 11.5k and my total weight of the jeep and the trailer is 7k. Towing it really isn't that bad. I cruised 12+ hours to Moab at 70mph with no issues. It is a bit of a bear to stop and I wish it was better but it's still safe and doable. I only tow maybe twice a year so it's not that big of a deal. If I towed once a month or so I would definitely choose a 3/4 ton.

    One more thing to note when I was buying my trailer is not all 7' wide trailers are built alike in fact most that I found are 82" wide at the wheel wells. My Jeep is 83" wide and the only one I could get ahold of locally that was wide enough was a PJ trailer that is 83" wide and I scrape the wheel wells loading. The 20 footer is definitely longer than I need but I got it used for a really good deal so I jumped on it. I would say if you want one that is good for a 2dr or 4dr an 18' is probably the best lengths and that you have 7.5k axles with dual axle brakes. 20180817_191722.jpg

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.
