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.

Cruisers post reminded me I didn't actually post a picture of my "rig" actually "towing" anything. Let me correct that....

That setup was a HUGE improvement over the one we took the trip before

I'll have to dig to find pix of that - epic year!

Still wondering if that Ram will make another trip, any plans before March to get rid of that Camaro

How long is that gooseneck?

Im looking to get a new trailer along with a 2017 Super Duty. Was thinking a 30' gooseneck to hold 2 JK's or my JK and TJ.

This one is a 32'. 28' deck, 4' dovetail. Works great. Eats tires though.

at 30' you may have the ass hanging on the back JK if you run spare tire carriers. JK + TJ is no issues.

Maybe I do need a 32'....The TJ is stretched on 42's so its about the length of a JKU now.
