Nice find.

8780 - 4977 = 3803

So you are not carrying more than one adult and one child, plus gas without going over towing 3500 lbs. (So I guess I'll be going over.)

Based on this...figure 4dr BL, 2.7, hardtop, lux will be around 5300lb curb weight and with my 3,395lb offroad camper, 2 adults (300lb total), 2 dogs (140lb total), I’ll be 295lbs over the GVWR. Complete BS. It states max tow rating is with driver/passenger both weighing 150lbs and varies based on configuration.

So I want to know what 4dr trim with the 2.7 gets you that max 3,500 towing, because the way I see it is if the 4dr BL w/ 2.7 comes in at lets say 5200lb curb weight with soft top and standard package, add driver/passenger 300lbs, that takes you to 5500lbs and tow rating of only 3,340lbs.

Am I giving the ShOrT WhEeLbAsE cAnT tOw crowd too much credit if I believe that they will figure out that a 2 Door with its lower curb weight will actually be able to tow more than a 4 Door much of the time?

That is a really good point. If you assume that a driver weighs 150lbs, then a base would have to have curb weight no higher than 5090lbs and a Black Diamond would have to have curb weight no higher than 5190lbs.

Nope there will still be a GVWR that as far as I know has not yet been released but is speculated to be a hair under 6000lbs. The loaded weight of your vehicle can never exceed GVWR. GCWR is the loaded weight of your vehicle and trailer combined, which is a different limitation.

I still feel like the sticker “3500” it’s going to go up just a little, but the actual will stay the same.
Meaning, like in the f150 the max towing vehicle is an odd configuration that never gets bought.

In this vehicle it likely would. Say if it was a 4 Door non-sasquatched BB, BD, or OBX with a slightly beefed-up rear suspension including disconnecting swaybar and a Class III hitch?

We should be able to get more armor and accessories if we opt out of the tow package...

Isnt this good news? Everyone was thinking the GVWR was like 7,000 lbs to match the wrangler class. People were freaking out on whether they could even load up the cargo hold and add a roof box for a family of four on a badlands.

Sort of unrelated to towing a trailer, but nice to see confirmation of "four-down" flat tow capability on both transmissions, especially given some of the most recent talk from the allegedly well-trained reps suggested otherwise.
