Re: What are you towing with?

2016 Ford Expedition. The EcoBoost engine is amazing. Other than slightly less bottom end power over the 5.0 V-8 we had in out 2014 F150 you don't know it's a V-6. It has the same tow rating as our F150 had at 9200 lbs on V-5 hitch and came with the brake controller installed. Haven't towed anything heavier than my 20 ft bay boat which is 3200 lbs total on trailer but it didn't even seem to feel it back there. Of course my F350 I had was better but you can't compare a 7.3 Powerstroke diesel to the 3.5 EcoBoost.

Not ours but one just like it. I don't have a photo hosting page.

What are you towing with?

the rig to be towed. I'm betting after the stripping it will come in to 4000. Superduty tons 37s.
the tow rig.
09 Chevy 5.3 6l80e 3.73 gears it moved my gfs dd on the heavy uhaul quite well. I wish the trailer was a bit longer so I could have gotten the load positioned better.

But it did 70 the whole way you could tell it was loaded but it went quite well.

Has anyone ever towed a Cherokee WITH another Cherokee, using a tow dolly?
Success or Failure?

I did, but the XJ being towed was just a shell and axles. No engine or transmission. I wouldn't tow a built XJ with another one that way though.

Re: What are you towing with?

I saw a Honda Accord towing a Cherokee on a dolly in So Cal. So yes it can be done. Is it a smart idea is probably a better question.

A dolly is different than a trailer. I'd use a dolly for a short haul.

I had to move my XJ on 38's about a mile once, used my dd XJ. Got about 100 feet down the road and realized that it was a dumb idea.

Ironically my last xj weighed in at 5500. Dana 44 front 12b zu rear and I went way to far overboard on the plating.
