Anyone towing a new 2014-15 Cherokee 4x4 with their Solera? Narrowing our choice to Jeep Wrangler or Cherokee. Would be interested in a Grand Cherokee but GVWR is ~4800 lbs.

Too heavy
Wrangler is about as heavy as i would tow. I think base 4 door is 4200
Right at limit
We tow a rubicon 2 door at 4000 minus the back seat which we removed for our dogs

We are towing a 2011 Chevy AWD Equinox. Very happy with how easy it is to set up for towing. We use a Roadmaster Sterling tow bar and have the Invisibrke from Roadmaster. Have only made one short trip so far and am happy with the way our Solera handled the set up.

Nice setup Sandiegodoug. If we get a Wrangler I'll need to leave the backseat in for the kids! We have a golden retriever too.

If you buy a two door wrangler have the kids climb in the back seat. It's not an easy thing to do.

The wrangler is a great camp toad
It you can go site seeing in the back country on any dirt road, drive through streams, it's built for camping and we have the soft top.
Nice to go cruising thru the national parks with nothing but the sky above you

Ok so we went and looked at a Wrangler and a Wrangler Unlimited (4 door model) today. I really liked the Unlimited but a check of the curb weight puts it at 4411 lbs. I think we could tow this with the Solera as long as we don't exceed the GVCW 15,250 lbs. We already just keep about 5 gal of water on board for the toilet. My main concern is that the wrangler really weighs more with say fuel. Does anyone tow a wrangler unlimited and have you weighed it?
