On the JL jeeps with Selectrac 4 auto, is it still fine to 4 flat tow it?

We dont dinghy tow, but we are looking at Wranglers, specifically the Moab edition, and you never know, we may someday end up 4 flat towing it.

Thanks!!

The Cherokee must have the active drive II. The 9 speed auto is not towable but with the active II it is because the transfer case can be set to neutral. Read the owners manual to be sure as there is much wrong info out there even with dealers and sales people.

Find the year of the Wrangler you're considering, scroll through the guide to Jeeps, and see what it says.
Caveat: Consult the vehicle manufacturer's guide for towing, or follow the instructions in the owner's manual for the vehicle in question, to be absolutely certain.

Your best resource is always the owners manual. Here is a copy of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Owners Manual

Find Page 389; RECREATIONAL TOWING (BEHIND MOTORHOME, ETC.)

It will cover all the details.

That's probably accurate for towing but there have been many errors published in Wrangler owners manuals over the last several years. Like Ronald Reagan said, "trust, but verify".


When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.
