Home Gear & Tech Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity Guide - 2007-2018 JKU

How much can you tow or haul with your Jeep? What is the manufacture recommendations?  As we built this list out we realized there is an amazing amount of JKU model options for each year but we wanted to keep it all on one page easy to find rather than split it up to make it annoying for people to find. Use the table of contents guide to Jump to a specific model/year or use your browser search function.

Following your manufacturer max capacities for towing is critical to ensure the safety of your vehicle and everyone in it. Never exceed the max capacity of your vehicle and always ensure you’re following the specifics of your owners manual. This post is informational only for reference. Your owners manual is the single source of truth for your specific vehicle.

Towing Capacity

The general rule of thumb is that if you need to tow heavy things, do not purchase a 3.21 geared Jeep. They’re generally limited to 100lbs tongue and 1000lbs towing.  If you want the most towing capacity, the four-door Jeep Wrangler with 3.73 or 4.01 gears is your best option with 3,500 lbs and 350lb tongue weight capacity.

In 2013 the 3.21 gear ratio axles Wranglers get a bump up to 2,000lbs weight and 200lbs tongue capacity.

Towing Capacity Definitions

Our guide is split up for model years with the following vehicle options and tow ratings:

Engine/Transmission – The engine & transmission for your model vehicle year. Auto and Manual transmissions can have different towing capacities.

Axle – Gear ratio of your Axle (as from the manufacturer – not based on aftermarket modifications.)

GCWR – Total permissible weight of vehicle + trailer.

Max GTW – Max gross trailer weight.

Max Tongue Weight – Max Tongue weight.

Frontal Area – The maximum height and width of your trailer.

Jeep Wrangler frontal area rating:

  • 2 Door Jeep Wrangler Frontal Area  – 25 sq ft
  • 4 Door Jeep Wrangler Frontal Area – 32 sq ft

Jeep Wrangler Trailer Load Guidelines.

Load a trailer with 65% of its weight in the front of the trailer.  Loads balanced in the rear of the vehicle or over the wheels can cause the trailer to sway and cause possible loss of control of the vehicle. Please be sure to follow recommendations from your specific vehicle and your trailer.
