Shouldn't have any problem at all. I pulled two different Wrangler 2drs behind our gas Itasca. We have some friends that are pulling a Chevy Equinox that is just a little lighter behind their Open Road and have no problem with it.

I am pulling a Jeep Sahara 4 door behind my 36LA with no problem. I also occasionally pull a Fiat at 2,300 pounds. The jeep definately has a little more "tug" then the fiat and is close to the 5000 lb rated capacity.

Shouldn't be a problem, I've been pulling a 2007 Liberty since 2008. First behind a class c and now a Tiffin 32CA. Dave

We drug our ~5000 lb jeep all over the western USA with 37' coach with V10. Got the job done.

We pulled a Wrangler with our 35’ gasser with no problem. Just make sure you get the right drop hitch to get your towbar level.

But , but, it’s a gasser! How can it possibly tow anything . . . ? (sarcasm)

Forget the drop hitch. Put a lift and some better tires on the jeep!!!

I tow a Grand Cherokee with my 36LA. A Wrangler would feel like a gnat compared to the GC.

We towed a 2000 Jeep Wrangler behind our 32 SA with the same engine and had no problem. Hardly knew it was back there.

We're dolly towing a 2017 CR-V (about 3,300 lbs.) behind our 2015 36LA but as yet we've only been tooling around the southeastern plains. Nonetheless I only know it's back there thnaks to the rear view camera.
