Does anybody tow with 37" tires?
I am looking at moving up to 37s from my current 35s and want to get a towable. Wife says we need to have a bathroom for camping trips so that limits our choices. Anyway, does anyone tow something around 3500lbs with 37" tires?

We did. A Coachmen Apex Nano 187RB with no problems. 11 MPG with them on average.

Gorgeous trailer. This would be my choice. Any issues towing? Did you mod your Jeep in any way to assist in towing?
No issues towing, no modifications to the Jeep. We use an Andersen weight distribution hitch to level and for sway control. We pack light and do not carry any water in the fresh water tank or gray tank while towing to stay under GCWR.

Here is my new set-up, 2018 Scamp 13'. I can't wait for some warmer weather.

Loving this setup. I have a 2 door as well and these 13' scamps seem like the best option to get out and see the world. is your jeep manual? let us know about your setup with tow hitch and wiring, electric trailer brakes etc..

I'm on 37s with 5.13s and tow this camper (sorry about the sun), ~2K lbs... 13.2 mpg with trailer, 17 mpg without. Pulls great and feels as stable as a lifted jeep can on the highway.

I too have a 2 door Sport S.

Your post above is now 6 months old.

1: How does the van tow?
2: What about braking?
3: Any trailer sway?

Need to get a better pic but we are locked down at the moment. The trailer has a max weight of 3500lb but is normally at 2600-2700lb with a tow ball weight of around 350lb, Jeep is rated to tow 5500lb. I have airbags in the rear and a RedArc tow pro 3 elite brake controller with a 2" hitch and a McHitch Automatic coupling (Google it if you haven't seen them). I have only towed it once with the JL and that was before the airbags went in, did do lots of miles with the JK Rubicon (3.8 4 speed Auto) though, it's night and day compared to the JLUR :)

Jeep is a 3.6 auto with 305/70R17's and 2" lift, tows great, got 15mpg last run on steep hilly terrain, the fact the camper is lower than the roof of the Jeep and not as wide really helps, also makes it great offroad.

Before the airbags went in and the auto hitch want on.

How’s the GeoPro holding up so far? I really dig this setup. As far as how it drives and tows, would you be comfortable driving cross country with that??
