I've had too many Sunday afternoon flat tires to wish it on someone that isn't deserving it.This is true.
There are some folks on this forum who will intentionally provide bad advice just so that they can see carnage happen to someone else’s vehicle.
After all, it’s not their Jeep so what do they care?
check for yourself but I recall reading that all trailers in euro have to have trailer brakes and other doodads that we just don't have to have in the states. In reading about what we have to have here is different in about every state, same in Canada too. So with these trailer rules possibly the vehicle is able to tow more. Again check.Everything else is the same with those units vs the US ones correct? Is it just our regulations are stricter or the manufactures have to use a specific calculation here? Seems crazy the US versions are rated at 2,000 lbs less.
What is your JLUR’s max payload capacity?For what it's worth I have an Australian delivered JLUR with the factory towbar (pics of mounting below). Stated specs per Jeep Aus are:
Max tongue download: 250kg/550lb
Max braked towing capacity: 2,495kg/5,489lb
If your rear crossmember and tow bar mounting are the same I'd say you're safe to tow what you're looking at.
My payload is actually less than what you have at 570kg/1,254lb but it doesn't really matter what the payload is for mine. Legally he can't tow more than 3,500lb or put more than 1,350lb in his Jeep including tongue weight. I think his question was can he do it and if the tow set up is the same as what I have then I don't see a reason why he couldn't do it safely.What is your JLUR’s max payload capacity?
Have to remember the OP is looking at 2 adults & 3 kids, plus throw in a 100 lbs WDH and it’s close to payload capacity before adding tongue weight
I believe European models are restricted to certain lower speed limits while towing, so no running the Autobahn at 95 mph while towing your whatever trailer.Everything else is the same with those units vs the US ones correct?
