Neebie Toad Question.

What are the best 4WD toads to pull 4down? Have a chance for a 1998 Cherokee, or should I opt for something else?

How much does the Cherokee weigh and what is the tow limit for your motorhome? Find out that information first. Jeeps are generally easy to tow.

There are a bunch of 4WD toads out there that are SUVs and are good day-to-day drivers.

Generally speaking the older Cherokees make great toads - BUT - there are some gotchas.
Is this a smaller boxy Cherokee or the larger, heavier Grand Cherokee? Is it 4WD or 2WD (yes, they made 2WD versions)? Auto or Manual trans?
Basically if it is a 4WD model with a transfer case lever that has a Neutral position, then you should be golden as far as EZ to tow 4-down. Then, as Roger states, make sure you are within the tow weight limits of your chassis.
