Tyler: I think you're real lucky. Have you bought the 649 lottery ticket yet. Sounds like you're a winner out of the gate. LOL
I have been afraid to tow anything heavy with mine. Only a small 6x6 camper trailer metal box converted into a trailer. It fits behind width wise perfectly. Not too wide so its not hanging out the side. Towed it empty and with a few cabinets once & other odds and ends. Its light as I can lift the side up myself. I am not so strong anymore...
This being my 2nd CVT in it. My 1st was a problem out of the gate. I know how expensive they are and with everything I seem to have to repair (sway bar links the other day) I am not asking for more trouble. I notices every time I towed empty or a few items in it (no more than 100lb-150lb in it). The engine does automatically rev higher on the highway and pulling away is a lot more effort. It clearly senses the load. Gas millage drops significantly as well.
Anyway the other day I decided to replace my aging Grand Cherokee mentioned in the Sig. I am getting a used 2008 Sante Fe AWD w/3.3L V6 Limited version. Rated at 3500 as per factory configuration on the Limited build. I'll not have any troubles with that since 2000lbs is the max when I tow 2 snowmobiles in its trailer to the trail head, a 40 min drive. The compass should handle it but I never tried since I have a much heavier duty vehicle which just keeps on going despite its 291,000km and gets 25mpg CND on the highway.
