Need advice

Will my 2011 Jeep Rubicon 4door with automatic transmission and 3.7 liter V6 pull a 2008 17 ft. Safari Sport?

Look at the loaded specs for both, and make a decision. If the trailer is anymore than 2/3s of the maximum for the jeep, I wouldn't even think about it. Don't forget you're going to need a brake controller and a weight distribution hitch. Don't forget to compare tongue weight specs.

Wow... That's a really short wheelbase TV. But, yes, I think it "can" pull the AS on level ground, properly hitched and loaded. Head to hilly and off camber surfaces, you are, as with any TV and RIG decision, on your own.

So, spec check. Let us know your numbers.
Peace and Blessings..

I see you live in Colorado, If you head East I would say you could, But as you know the Jeep is a tad under powered to begin with so heading West over the divide would be a challenge.
