Just curious. I rented a trailer to test pull. Your right pulls like a horse. I have 3000 miles and am averaging about 26-27 mpg about 80% highway. Not bad for a 5800 lb vehicle that is a joy to drive.


I wanted to stay with the 18" wheels for off road use so I had to stay with the limited. Wireman

I have the 18s on my Overland since I have the ORA-2 package. While it helps with skids etc, in general the tires suck in any light snow. I can't wait to wear them out and get something better like an AT. I have 20K miles on my Overland already so tires aren't too far away.

I never did weigh my trailer when fully loaded. Was always too busy trying to meet travel times that I didn't want to sit on the scales. Dry it weights about 5400 lbs.

I actually bought my travel trailer in Sandy Utah as well, Camping World. I had a closer dealership in Kaysville Utah but they didn't have the model I wanted.

Ran across a set of scales last week. Trailer weighed 6970 lbs and tongue was 770 lbs. We pulled that over the Cabbage Hill/Deadman Pass twice @ 55mph and still got 13.5 mpg. Love that Jeep.

brained, how does the trailer tow? Is it pretty solid with no sway other than passing trucks & side wind?


I'm buying a Centerline TS WDH with sway control. I also added the option from Jayco (trailer sway control) that modulates the trailer brakes from side to side when sway gets above normal. It's mounted on the front of the trailer. It was a $375 option.


So hopefully between the 3(Jeep, WDH, and Trailer) it will be a pleasant experience.

volvite, I thought all overland's came with the 20" wheels. If I would have known the ORA II came with the 18's I might have looked for that option.


To late now. I did a lot of research and some how I missed that. Does it ride any different with the airbags? Looks like a nice option for more ground clearance. I don't do a lot of off road stuff and snow is not relavent where I'm at so The tires will do me fine.


20K on miles, do you ever shut that Jeep off? Wireman

Beautiful truck. Wish I could have gone to the Laramie trim. Alas, my pockets are not that deep.

Only sway I've felt was when new and empty and that was just for a moment. No issues since. It just has a friction pad type sway bar and I crank it down tight when we leave town.

Passing trucks result in a gentle pull toward them, a bit of steering correction keeps it straight.

I don't like ruts, it seems they bounce the Jeep around as much empty as towing though so maybe that's a reflection of it having highway tires instead of the AT or MT that I'm used to.

The make and model are in my signature; I have considered buying a new truck many times, even gone as far as sitting down at the dealership and throwing numbers back and forth on a power wagon. Ended up walking out and sticking with this trusty girl. She is paid for, gets better mileage than most expect, has managed to get me into and out of many sticky situations, and mechanically is very sound.
