Uhhh no. The engine is not a Mercedes.

And in max towing configuration it'll pull about 7000 lbs. Rubicon is less.

5000 mile update. This thing is a blast.

So far I've been stuck in the mud once. And ripped the electrical connector out of the transfer case once. Somehow got a branch wedged up in the skid plate and it acted as a fulcrum and yanked the wiring out of the connector. But I know a guy and it didn't cost me anything.

Only complaint is it needs more power. Plenty of options there, just a matter of money. 6.4 crate motor can be had for about 8 grand. Hellcat for 25 lol. Most swap kits are for automatics so there's that...

One kid graduating and off to college and one getting married so 2020 is pretty full. May finally build a bigger garage in the fall and then I'll have room to play. Wife is on board if I can include new kitchen cabinets into the garage budget lol.

I forgot how enjoyable it is shifting gears for myself every day.
