Towing Jeep Wrangler

So - We went to Anchors down and met some great people. When we bought our DX3 we decided not to tow but car rent at destination. After much coaching from Joet19711 on having a toad, coaching from Shultz01 on getting a Wrangler and good advice from Orangecrush, here it is. Thanks to everyone. ( Before anyone comments it does have doors and a roof ).
I have never flat towed before ( itís illegal in the UK). I intend to purchase a road master nighthawk with SMI Air Force air braking system. Anybody have any experience or advice?

Nothing productive to add, but just wanted to say nice Jeep and welcome to the dark side! When you get ready to start modifying the Jeep I'll be happy to jump in with tips then

As for the braking system, I hadn't seen that one. Looks very slick so I'll be watching your experiences closely. The only other one I'd seen that uses air had a piece that went in between the master cylinder and brake pedal. I'd love to ditch the compressor box setup.

Congrats!!

Beautiful and very wise buying the 'Hard Rock' edition. You can go anywhere with that beast right out of the box. I tell my friends that owning a Hard Rock is really cheating, it makes off roading so easy. Have fun out there. If you go to Moab during Easter Jeep Safari and you are a Jeep newbie there are about 3 or 4 beginner runs you can choose and the folks with you will teach you all about 4 wheeling. Your family will love it and the Moab area is just beautiful.
