The Jeep Wrangler is probably the easiest to rig for towing but a lot depends on if you have other needs for the vehicle, hauling stuff? Have kids? Have pets? It may not be the most practical but it has an almost cult following for a reason.

MAke sure you consult the owners manual for towing instructions on any thing you buy. Do not just take someones word for the proceedure.
No kids but grands and they love the Jeep. Peanut loves to cruise the Blue Ridge Pkwy. with the rag down. Thinks he's Top Dog I guess. We go to Boone, N.C. in the winter yo play in the snow. 4WD makes for a lot of fun.

We tow either a Jeep Wrangler or a Honda CRV. Something to keep in mind is on any vehicle in the back of the owners manual its shows a tow truck operator how that particular vehicle may be towed. Usually it has text and pictures showing you the different ways it can be towed and any special instructions that you need to know.

When towing I want something simple and quick. I have towed Jeeps, which are quick and easy. We used a Remco drive shaft disconnect, no problems. We currently tow a Chevy Equinox, again quick and easy. If you are considering a tow dolly watch someone disconnect and hook up. In a pull through sit they seem ok, but in a back in site they appear to be a lot of trouble.
