Hi Dave-- If only when towing, make sure your Jeep steering wheel is unlocked, and check all your tire pressures. Is your tow bar set up accoring to instructions?

I just bought 2022 Greyhawk 29. My first Ford to own. Found out that if you turn off traction control it drives like a Chevy! Try it!

Tighten your Hellwigs down to 2”. Make sure your not rear heavy - weigh it at a CAT scale and mind your GVWR and RAWR.

Itíll level out your rig, esp. if you have weight on the tongue. Might give you more steering control. Iíd highly advise you weigh out while set to tow. If youíre overweight nothing will help.

Is the front end alignment of the Jeep within spec? Especially caster.

The only thing adjustable on a jeep alignment is toe. If you wanted to adjust caster you would need to purchase arms that are adjustable. Mopar makes lower arms, but in reality there will be little affect to a towing situation like this.

True story.... My uncle had a trailer hitch on the back of his tow vehicle that was off-center.

Just to confirm, when not towing, the rig drives like a dream with the adjustments/equipment, yes?
