I hadn't previously either. And maybe there was a different reason than it just being a FWD unibody. But comparing the way it towed to the Explorer I towed with before, it was way worse. White knuckling it on the highway is not a fun relaxing way to start a trip.Never have towed with a FWD vehicle. Would like to try and see what it is like, just out of curosity. My Taco is rated at 5000lbs, towed nearly 4000lbs with it a couple times (yard of gravel plus trailer)...not fun. At least it was only a few miles from the Tractor Supply. In all realty probably get it delivered next time.
Thought the Jeep would have been a nice fuel efficient DD for the wife and tow vehicle for the weekends. But, nope.
