you shouldnt have a problem, i have no doubt you truck will pull it because ive pulled that much with mine. all you have to keep a eye on is speed and have good breaking distance most uhaul trailers have breaks, its all self contained so you wont have to do anything to your truck. Also keep it out of over drive.
you cann rent those "wheel tows" where simply you put the jeeps front wheels on the trailer and tow like that. I also remember though something about possibly having to remove the rear drive shaft because the transfercase will spin without self lubricating...or something..
Id rent the trailer, the dolly imo should only be used for 4x2 cars. Since it will move on its own power all you will have to do is drive in on the trailer be be done with it. just dont get in a hurry and you'll be ok.
It's not like you're towing in any mountains or anything, it will be fine if it's an automatic. If it's a manual it is going to suck to get it moving. I believe the uhaul trailers have surge brakes. They kind of suck but they will help slow you down. Make sure to load the jeep nose first (duh) to keep a reasonable amount of tongue weight on the hitch.
you can flat tow a jeep , it is legal, although murder on the brakes though
place the transfer case in 4 hi , and the transmission in neutral , and remove the front drive shaft
if you are going to use a dolly -- make sure that it has hydraulic brakes -- the front wheels go on the dolly
if the owners manual is still in the vehicle - read it - it has the flat tow / dolly towing info in it.
U-haul - tell them your towing a 64 VW Sandrail - tube frame no body total weight of 700 lbs... Works everytime....
Use a flat dolly its much easier, but the aluminum ones weigh approx 2400 lbs... ( I don't know how but it did)
DISAGREE ON THE T-CASE !!!!!
When towing a Jeep, don't tow in any gear on T-case if Neutral is available. Manual tranny always to gear 5 If a (NP-231 / 232 t-case) ( its cheap insurance - would you rather your tranny pop into a low gear or a high gear when you don't know it? Put it there, it helps lubricate tranny...)
Other than that depends on the year. Manual or Auto, their is different instructions for towing due to the transfer case is different, and the lubrication of the t-case and tranny are different.
Yes a 2wd 4.0 Ranger Edge can pull one, I flat tow mine a few thousand miles a year mostly 200 miles at a shot. I cheated and have manual hubs on both axles on the Jeep now. It's just under 5k lbs. and the Ranger doesn't complain until I brake, just make sure you have extra stopping room and drive slower than normal...
as far as the towing advice that's already been coverd,but i would bring a bigger truck to rent something from uhaul because they wouldnt let my parents rent one of those little enclosed trailers and they have a 04 expo with a 4.0.they also wouldnt even let my sister rent the same trailer and she's got a 95 4.0 4wd cherokee
