Thanks for the good feedback. I called the parts dept at my Jeep dealer and asked what else I needed to increase tow capacity. They looked up my VIN and told me (argh-not sure I want to risk my Jeep on it) that my Limited V6 already had a oil and transmission cooler, and that would allow me to pull the heavier load since I had the hitch installed at Jeep, but I may need greater support on my suspension. I am not willing to risk ruining my new Jeep trying to pull too heavy of a load. I will stick with the recommended 2000 lbs. Anybody selling a "LitteGuy" or "T@B" trailer? :-)
" and that would allow me to pull the heavier load since I had the hitch installed at Jeep" Get this in writing and certified from the dealer if you do decide to pull a heavier load than what the Manual says you can do. I know you said your not going too--but just in case you change your mind, protect yourself.
