Yes, I thought that sounded way to much to me.

The hitch is nice, but a heavy long wheel base much safer.

Old thread, I know, but I've come back looking for more info. So, just wanted to point out that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee (5.7 L, 8 cylinder Hemi) with the tow package is rated for up to 7,400 lbs.

This weekend, today or tomorrow. Long story on the car....boils down to the fact that the first car, 4x4, didn't have the tow pkg (they assured us it did...) so we ended up driving it until they built the one we thought we were getting. As long as we were doing that, we switched to 4x2. Just got it Tues. We'll let you know how it goes. Have a trip planned for the Keys, end of July (hot, I know!). Got lucky...someone had cancelled at Long Key State Park. (:
