Dude..I wouldn't do it. These cars are finnicky and anything that stresses turbos (other than chipping! ) isn't worth the cost of new K03s ($5700 est.)

REALLY don't want to be wollowing around in the Cherokee for 2600 miles 
of interstate round trip, especially deadheading back north.

I think U-Haul's little 5x8 would be big enough; I wouldn't even 
contemplate anything larger. I looked through the fabled Owner's Manual 
and it's no help: "towing is not recommended..." (neither is chipping!) 
"or if you really must - class I or II". Not a thing about actual 
weight or frontal area.

I know it'd stress those fragile turbos a bit, but I can be easy, and 
that's what the oil temp gauge is for. We'll be west of the 

Can you even fit a 2" hitch under the plastic bumper? I thought I'd 
seen 'em in Germany.
