I have had Fords, Jeeps, and GMs over the years, so I am not married to a brand. I will note that many Jeeps and GM 4WDs can be towed without modification or speed/distance limits.
I like some of the Ford product but the almost all have a speed and or distance limitation.
I currently tow a 99 Suburban - if I break down I can load my dogs, enough of my stuff (oh yes, my delightful wife) and get on down the road. I tow a 99 Suburban because towing a new vehicle doesn't make sense to me - they tend to get beat up.
