Looking at the Jeep Grand Cherokee, all seem nice, out of 145 for sale in South FL, no v8's at the moment. Seems like the V6's might not be enough to tow this boat. Will keep looking!.

Grand Cherokee has half ton pickup drivetrain too? Also checking Nissan Armada but mileage isn't so great. With my Durango I get about 11 miles per gallon under tow.
