Changing toads

I am currently towing a Chevy Avalanche. In this I load a golf cart and carry bikes on the back via a bike rack. I have been looking at a leftover 2013 Jeep Wrangler and have negotiated a pretty good deal on one (as Jeep deals go). If I go that route I would lose the ability to haul the golf cart without going to a trailer. Opinions???? Should I just stay with the current setup or trade?

I know. I test drove and really liked the handling and ride was firm but fair. Leaning toward the trade but am currently camped and have the golf cart. Trading would mean selling the cart and getting the Jeep ready to tow home. Base plates, hitch, wiring.

It would make sense to consider how much you used the golf cart; if it wasn't being used much, then the decision should be easy.

Put a set of Turf Tires on the Wrangler and use for a Golf Cart.

Why would you need a new tow bar (hitch)? Just need a baseplate and wiring harness for your present tow bar (hitch).

Can your aux. brake on the Chevy be moved to the Jeep?

Not a tow bar a hitch on the back to put the bike carrier on.

Pulled the trigger on the Jeep. Now have to sell a golf cart before going home.
