You will need to make sure the year and model you get is flat towable. I have a 4 door Rubicon that is about 5 years old and it is great. I love taking it on RV trips.

We pick up our new Newmar Tuesday now I want to buy a lightly used jeep to tow what jeep are you towing ? Any and all info would be appreciated thank you in advance.


Can you be more specific? There are all kinds of "Jeeps" and they are all different.

All Wranglers are Jeeps but not all Jeeps are Wranglers.


When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

The Jeep tj 1997-2006 does have a chipped key option, if it’s thick and gray it’s got sentry key, you remove the steering wheel lock, I’ve done that to my 2001 Cherokee and me 2006 Jeep unlimited, both tow well. I also have demco stay and play in each rig.

If you're just looking for something to tow and knock around on the trails, I'd look for a TJ 1997-2006. I think they're the simplest and most practical off road of any Wranglers. If you're looking for a little more room and comfort then some of the newer pre 2018 JKU's would be my choice. I likely would not look and any of the early JKU's as several years had the "new design" bugs still in them. Towing just about any Wrangler is a no brainer. Some differences between years but they're all pretty easy to tow.

it all depends on the condition of Wrangler Im prepared to spend up to $30K but if I find something in good shape and mechanicaly sounds for less that's fine.

Love our Grand Cherokee too and have towed it just over 16K miles now. Unfortunately there are enough posts and have spoken to two GC owners reporting the death wobble issue on slow turns. Because of this I wouldn't get another until the issue is resolved. Jeep has released a wiring harness but there are issues with it also.
