Follow up.....bought the GC. Been on four trips and pulls with ease. The GC manual does give you a limit of around 3400 lbs before requiring a WD hitch. I am right at that weight, did not do WDH and have no issues. A little frustrating how hard it is to find this info before buying the TV. Love the jeep, love the 277 and they seem to be a perfect fit.

It is hard to find info on towing, especially opinions on "how it feels." The older GCs are good TVs.
You need to post pics of it all hooked up!

I was considering the GC as a replacement for my 98 4runner if it couldn't tow the 277 after we got it last fall. Well after 2 long trips up high mountains of both the NY Adirondacks and the Green Mountains of Vermont, I find my old camping truck still capable of doing the job. That's with a 5000lb tow capacity. So I'm confident you will have no issue towing with that Jeep. Enjoy your trailer, it is amazing.
