You should be able to handle this trailer with the Jeep with no problem, provided you have a properly installed hitch. It will be a greater strain on the 2.8L engine than it would be on the 4.0L 6-cylinder, but nonetheless it should be doable.


The right answer....NOT MUCH


Would that make it okay for hauling a 400 dirtbike using a trailerhitch mounted carrier?
