Default New tow vehicle

Traded in my old Wrangler for a new Gladiator Mojave.

The Wrangler could tow 3000 lbs, but it struggled. Every trip something would fail and we were getting tired of it. The JK Wrangler just wasn't really intended to be a tow vehicle.

So with the Mojave package, it has upgraded suspension, extra engine cooling, larger capacity alternator, a 6000 lb tow rating, oil, tranny and coolant monitoring, and was designed to run in hot, desert conditions.

It also has a cool backup camera feature called Hitch Zoom, you can zoom in on the hitch to help back up to the trailer.

So far I've only got a few pictures, but I'll get more when we take it camping this Memorial Day in Ely Nevada.

This is one of my favorites.

Beautiful! That HitchCam is awesome. I have to tell my HitchBall Wizard that she may be out of a job pretty soon. (Or not -- I kind of enjoy watching her work her magic.).

I love my wife with all my heart... but she is absolutely, beyond a doubt, the worst at helping me back up to the trailer.

If she's not standing where I cannot see her, she doesn't say anything until it's too late.

This will help.

Fortunately, mine is a genius at guiding me through the process, which is great since I am not a natural back-up guy. I can follow instructions, usually.

Awesome! Yes. SUV are grocery getters for taking kids to soccer practice.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Land Rovers are the only SUV with U. It's fake marketing!

We are with a Jeep because my husband drove PU trucks on the farm as a child. That's how we came to the FF Ultralights.

I hear you, my wife is exactly the same way. I keep telling her “ if you can’t see my face in the mirror I can’t see you“ 😬

For some unknown reason - they fail to comprehend that fact!
