Looks like a lot of fun. We pulled a Starcraft XP18rb with a Wrangler Unlimited.

As a Jeep Wrangler owner myself, I'm enjoying everything about this! How much flack have you received about being over the tow rating of the 2dr??

And as a photographer I noticed you had a smugmug, so I must ask... Nikon or Canon?

Actually it's an Unlimited (made 'em 2005 and 2006) so it's rated at 3,500 pounds and other than being a little sluggish with 2,500 lbs in tow it handles the little Jayco just fine.

As to cameras, Nikons and Canons are for sissies ;-)

Being running Pentax since 1971, now using a K5.

Cheers, Chris - Prescott AZ

So you've got the same tow rating as the 4dr Unlimiteds. I had a 2013 2dr that I traded on a 2014 4dr. I HATED the 4dr. It just didn't feel like a Jeep, so I traded it after 4 months on a 2014 2dr.

And about the cameras, I've gone back to film. Running my own darkroom again, and my camera of choice is the Hassy 500cm.

The Unlimiteds from '05 and '06 are more like real Jeeps, just 10 inches longer. Don't have the creature comforts of the later JKs though...

I started photography in Junior College in 1969. All B&W, all medium or large format, all developed and printed in the College darkroom. Now I just need a way-back machine.

I had an '03 for a while. Then had to get a diesel to pull horse trailers. The '13 was my venture back into the Wranglers. The '14 is definitely not what the '03 was!
