I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited 4 door. It weighs about 4100# and I tow it 4 wheels down. I was haveing a problem with the wheels when I put the transfer case in neutral and the tranny in park. With the ignition in ACC the steering wheel was supposed to be unlocked but as I found out it wasnt necessairly true. The motorhome steering wheel was cocked at a different angle and that was my clue that the steering wheel in the Jeep was in actuality still locked. I was at the dealer(Jeep) recently and they changed out the ignition switch and the service rep told me the 2008 ignition switches do not have an ignition lock. Other than that the Jeep (for us) is the ideal toad. The 4 door has a ton of room with the back seats down and can seat 5 whith the back seats up. It goes anywhere, can be a convertable on nice sunny days and gets semi ok gas MPG.

I caution those reading this information/misinformation. As of TODAY, I have been in contact with 23 other '08 Wrangler owners and they all say they have a steering wheel lock!!

I am in the process of setting up my Chevy Cobalt for towing. I got the manual transmission because I enjoy driving a stick shift. My owners manual states that the auto is also towable 4-down with no modifications. It is also quite economical and a pleasure to drive.

Good luck.
