    Thanks guys for the input. I gots some of the answers I was expecting and some, alittle surprised (and secretly what I wanted to hear).

    I am very aware of the civil liabilities and potential conflicts with insurance companies should there be an incident.

    If I decide to go Jeep, in addition to my regular DD car, I still have the family truck to use as well. So there is a backup plan too.

    After months of searching, saving, checking out options, I picked up my new tow vehicle. A new 2013 Wrangler Unlimited. Should do just fine towing the Outback. Hitch is getting put on tomorrow.

    Easy install. Four bolts through the rear body rail. Good for 2,000 pounds. Get a LOD rear bumper and get a more solid set up and get rid of the stock playground plastic bumper. Easy install.

    Thanks guys, I put the hitch and wire harness on myself. I put on a 7 pin trailer harness. I just prefer it over the 4 or 5, because the durability. I figure with my setup I am good to 3,500#. I had got the 3.73 gears in the Jeep which is part of the max-tow package. I would love to indulge in some of the aftermarket goodies and get rid of some of the playschool plastic, but I have to wait for the finances to catch back up.

    3500lbs? What does it say on the tow sheet? You want 3.92 gearing...remember you need to factor in fluids, gear, and other crap..

    No, you are going to want some 4.56s for the 35" tires and towing.

    That thing will pull all most anything you can hook to it stopping is a different story.

    Boat has trailer brakes so stopping shouldn't be an issue, but the high center of gravity and short wheel base will. Once that boat starts to sway it's going to be a terrifying ride..
