I pulled my 21' Wellcraft with mine, 3400lbs plus 72gal of gas and other junk on board. 75mph down the Fla. Turnpike. It wouldn't comfortably maintain 75 going up hills or over bridges, but I was pretty happy. It towed at 55 beautifully. Once I got into the Keys where you can't do 75 without attracting the FHP, you'd hardly know the boat was back there.

My 99 Grand (with the 4.7) went swimming with Wilma, so her pulling days are over. I'm shopping a bit now for another used truck/SUV, and I'd but another Grand Cherokee (4.7 only) again if the right one came around. The seats in Mako's look similar to mine (mine was a LTD), and they are like riding in a La Z Boy...
