Do you own one?
Do you use it to tow your boat?
Wife is looking to buy one and would like to trade my beat up F-150 4.6 for a jeep.

I am looking to buy one, But not to pull my boat.
How big is your boat?
I use to have a Trail Blazer (about the same size as a jeep) that I pulled my boat. It worked but not as well as my 1/2 ton truck.
Guess you can say that a Diesel do a better job still . You should weigh out your needs, How far and often do you tow?

Jeeps have too short of a wheelbase and not enough braking power to be suited for towing.

That boat is pretty light. The Jeep would probably get the job done. A full size truck or SUV would do it better.
