We can relate! Been pulling a R177 Rpod for a couple of years with our 2013 JKU rubicon. Logged close to 20K miles with that setup.
We just upgraded to a 2016 R179 Rpod. Haven't noticed much difference in performance with the heavier unit.
Sometimes, we'd like to have a more powerful TV, but love having the Rubicon to get around where we go.
