if its on a dolly, I would think anything front-wheel drive would be acceptable.

We tow a FWD Acura RDX behind our coach...as mentioned, almost any FWD vehicle will do well, as long as they sit high enough to clear the dolly parts. I had an issue with an Avalon not clearing my Kar Kaddy SS because it sat too low

Not all Jeep 4WD can be towed 4 down. You can check the owners manuals online to see which models and transmissions will work. Wonder why the OP wants to use a dolly if they want to pull a Jeep behind them. I have a Master Tow Dolly and love the simplicity of it along with its plastic fenders and LED lights.
