Depends. The older jeeps had mechanical takeoff from the transfer case and would count the miles. Newer with electronics do not count the miles. In Wrangler models the YJ and older count, TJ and newer do not count.

What years and model jeep are you considering?

we tow either a 2003 Wrangler TJ or a 2010 Liberty and neither records mileage when towing.

My 02 Liberty and 12 Liberty or my 14 Cherokee do NOT count the miles. As stated it depends on the Toad.
