I don't have anything to tow off-road yet... but I have my adventure rig...

Image

It's an 81 W150, part time NP208 transfer case, 225 slant six, 4 speed, converted to propane, carries 65 gallons of propane which is worthy of 500+ miles of off-paved-road travel between fills. It'll go about 800 miles on the highway, if you keep it under 60, for a tank of fuel. Yes, that flag is a CB antenna.

It has a locker in the back and I'm going to get the one in front installed soon.

Eventually, it'll have a 2 inch lift, front and rear winches, two extra batteries, and a close ratio 5 speed manual.
5 out of 4 people are bad at math.

So many jeeps... Are there any Toyota fans out there or am I all alone???

This is my off road rig (2006 Rubicon Wrangler Unlimited) somewhere over one of the Colorado high mountain passes.
Image

I will use it to tow my teardrop to a base camp and then go off roading in the Jeep from the base camp.

Just started my Expo trailer this past weekend. Not really a tear drop but small and along the same lines. Doing the suspension a bit different with the trailing arms with the air bags and shocks up in the trailer. But I plan to tow it with Big Black. Old school stuff is all I feel comfortable with.
