  1. Safe max OIL temp when towing?

    Made my first big tow last night. I was watching all the gauges. Trans was running 195-200. Coolant stayed under 220. But the oil was consistently running 230 and I saw 236 one time. What's a safe high number? I have a stock 2022 Mojave, 13,400 miles, pulling a 22' RV. I was running 55 mph...
  2. Trailer and a half lowered tailgate

    Looking to put a quad in the back of my gladiator while towing my 5x8 trailer. I want to keep the tailgate at half while I do. Would the trailer jack hit the tailgate? I’d rather be sure and ask before going and messing up the back of my truck. Thanks you for your time
  3. Wheel load rating. . . what is it?

    Do any of you tow a camper off-road? I recently went on a trip with a buddy that towed a camper with his ZR2 and it was a PITA. I ended up having to drag the camper up and down the trail to camp for him. I understand campers provide comfort and simple shelter but for the places I like to go...
