  1. Moving. Thinking about towing a uhaul cargo trailer with my 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (4 door, NOT JK). How much can I safely tow?

    • Hi holleyk, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL 4 door can tow 3500 lbs. You can confirm this by visiting the owner’s manual “Source” link on the right side of the table above.
