  1. Mopar Brake Controller Installation

    Has anyone installed the OEM controller? Do I need any additional harnesses if I already have the tow package? 82215652AB https://www.mopargenuineparts.com/sku/82215652.html
  2. Towing a Travel Trailer

    I have a 2020 JLUR with the 3.6L engine and tow package. I am considering getting a small (less than 20 foot long) ravel trailer. Does anyone have experience towing a travel trailer with a JLUR? I am especially curious about handling in strong winds as we get a lot of them where I live and plan...
  3. Adventures in towing: Sport S & 2 Vespas

    We found out a few days before our long distance move that our movers couldn't transport our vintage Vespas (2 stroke 200cc not hwy legal). So knowing nothing about towing we bought an old 3-rail steel motorcycle trailer on CL and winged it. My Sahara has the tow package but I was also...
  4. Autowbrake Wireless Trailer Brake Controller

    Never used, still in box Autowbrake wireless brake controller. If you didn’t order the towing group on your JL this is the easiest way to control your trailer brakes. We bought it for our Subaru to tow a teardrop just before purchasing our JLU and no longer need it. Asking $250, compare to...
  5. 2019 JL Towing

    The JL's towing capacity is 3500lbs, I have a 2500lb pop-up trailer (loaded) and I enjoy going disbursed camping (so there is some off-roading required). I have avoided using my JL and instead opted for pulling it with my truck (5.4L V8) to not push the towing limits of my Jeep. Any thoughts -...
  6. Transmission Temperature Gauge, Can I Rely On It?

    I have a 2019 JLUR, auto, 3.6L, factory tow package, and am towing near max. I know consistent high temps harm transmission fluid, shortening transmission life and want to avoid that Two questions; is the digital “Trans Temp” gauge range accurate? And what is the actual “danger” redline number...

  9. One-Time Long Trailer Haul

    We're about to move from southern California to Washington state and we'd like to use our 2018 hardtop Sahara Unlimited to pull a small U-Haul cargo trailer. I'm trying to figure out if there's anything I need to do to make sure it's up to the task. It has the 3.6L and the factory towing...
  10. Towing/Snatch Straps, Shackles Guide

    Was reading quite a few posts now but can't find any compact answers for this Topic. So I am hoping for some experienced JL owners when it comes to purchase the equipment that is right for your car. The Market is damn big and as a newbie sometimes overwelming as well. I am driving a STOCK...
  11. Maximus-3 JL Winch Plate & Accessories

    MAXIMUS-3 Knows Winch Plates... * In 2013 Maximus-3 was the first company to design a winch plate to fit a Warn Zeon inside the JK 10A/Hard Rock bumper. A feat of engineering that was said to be "not possible." * Our Winch Plate structurally exceeds all standards required by winch...
  12. Can you see the hitch on the backup camera?

    In my other SUVs I can see the hitch ball when backing which makes hitching the trailer a breeze. On my JL I cannot see the ball, the tire covers the view. I would hate to use an extension on the hitch. Am I the only one with this issue? I have a 5” drop hitch, but even with a straight hitch I...
  13. Motorcycle towing and carriers for the JL

    I'm planning to purchase a Honda Grom soon and was thinking of the best way to transport it with my Jeep when I travel. Has anybody used a hitch mounted motorcycle carrier (like this one: https://www.discountramps.com/black-widow-motorcycle-carrier/p/MCC-500/) for their bikes on their JLU or...
  14. Factory Towing Package - Data in UConnect

    If you have the factory towing package, what options are included in UConnect that relate to towing? I read a thread somewhere that said there is a factory computer flash that can be done so that the vehicle recognizes when you are towing something. Also, something that activates the anti-sway...
  15. Mopar Tow Harness Install

    Ok, so I got around to installing the Harness today and documented as much as I could remember as I was working. It’s not a terrible job, but took me about 4 hours. 1. Disconnect the battery. I actually disconnected both the positive and negative. 2. Remove cap and unscrew the plastic bolt...
  16. JL towing RV experience.

    Hi All! I towed my RV from Central Texas to Central Virginia and the JL exceeded expectations by far. RV Specs: Weight 1100lbs (empty) Tongue weight 150lbs (empty) Probably had 300lbs of stuff loaded. Acceleration and breaking were at no time an issue. If felt really strong on in the hills...
  17. Anyone towed anything with their JL yet?

    I am curious as to how it responded while towing compared to the JKU or other towing experiences. Towing a boat to and from the lake would most likely be the extent of what I want to do with it. Any input from those that have already received their JLU?
  18. Trailer Hitch

    Does the rubicon come with a trailer hitch or do you have to get the package?
  19. Towing Capacity

    Anyone have any thoughts based on the current information available on if the 3500lb towing capacity on JKU will be increased on the JLU?
