I bought a 1997 Jeep Cherokee a few years back to use as a dedicated tow vehicle. I spend a lot of time cleaning it up and it was a darn nice Jeep. It towed great around town and on flat ground, but as soon as I hit some hills with it, the tranny overheated badly. I sold it for $1000 more than I paid for it :lol:

Image

A few years prior to that, I had an early 90's Ford Explorer. That was a great tow rig. It was comfy and pulled my boat with ease, even loaded down with guys and gear.

Image

Right now I usually use my lifted Jeep Comanche to tow the boats. It does fine around town, but not so good on the highway and trips. The wife's mini-van does pretty well, but she doesn't let me take it on fishing trips. My Civic has pulled on occasion, but, well, its a Civic. I'd really like to get a nice SUV that is great for towing and trips, but the bad gas mileage is killer on my 60 mile daily commute.
