Ironically, I installed a trailer brake kit in this a few years ago and have been lucky to fit on my buddies goose each year and never needed to tow my Jeeps w/ this yet...well, wheeling, anyway.

I do have plans to get the JK on a single car this spring to Moab and put it to it's first real west bound trek tho, so here it is as it sits now:



Love it, best vehicle I've ever owned!

Yes, it is dirty as hell!

I paid extra for the towing package on mine. Literally went out of my way to pay more get the better towing mirrors and trailer brake controller. I hated the towing mirrors for a long time, and broke the passenger side one within a few months of ownership. I now am used to them and love them but it took a while.

The trailer brake controller has literally never been used. I thought about putting trailer brakes on the ATV trailer just so I could justify having it in the truck.

LOL, nice! Yeah, I towed my 18' trailer when I moved, several trips...even the Jeep to get it up here, but never once hooked up a trailer that needed the controller since

I did go w/ the factory version tho, it's super clean. Truck had the tow pkg, just not the controller. I've not looked at a new truck since I sat in this one, and I have no plans in doing so for the near future!

15 Laramie, tows like a dream.

Except when flat towing a Jeep with old hard tires on a twisty icy road.
