My KJ towed this beast without issues...



I've seen pics of others towing small campers, cars, trailers, etc... they're good to go up to 5000 lbs.

It's not a full size truck, but it does real well for it's size. Rated at 5,000 lbs for the Gasser and CRD engines.

Husband bought it for a parts van for cheap - he has 2 other Astro vans. I towed it from body shop to his brother's house where it's currently stored.

I have never had any problems towing any of my trailers
have a 5X8 open trailer with 3 foot side boards that I load with fire wood and cruise on down the road.
This one pictured I moved my wife from Ohio to Boston and back with it, my nephew to Orlando, well two trips down fully loaded, hauled my Harley bagger in it at times. Towed great

I tow an 18' camper that is 3,400lbs. empty. One thing to remember about towing. Just because you can pull it doesn't mean you should. I used to pull a pop up camper all over the place (yard) with my riding mower. Would it be safe to pull it on the highway? No way. Stay below 5k and be safe.
