I know what the towing limit is, just wondering on the weight limit of the hitch, was looking at getting a cargo mount for it and was wondering what the weight limit would be.

Not sure if it is in the owners manual or not, sadly the Jeep is not here with me so cant run out and check.

Has any one found a tire mount for the tail gate? Would love to have full size spare back their and some jerry cans.

The 2.4 is 200lbs max. It is not recommended to tow with the 1.4.
Thank you!

Was hoping for maybe twice that if not a little more :)

Had thought when I didn't have the cargo rack on it I could do a step accessories to help my short self get items in the roof.

Any one else struggling with lack of space in this Jeep? My old XB (scion) seemed to have twice amount of storage and a stronger roof :(

200lbs is the maximum for towing If you were just stepping on it it would probably take a lot more. I can't be sure though.

One of my cars had a maximum of 75kg, I stood on It when I weighed close to twice that and it was fine.

Thank you, was looking for it for two reasons.

The first was a basket like this, figured it could help with the cargo issue.

And could put some jerry cans on it for extra fuel. The second was to get a step mount for other times.

http://www.realtruck.com/go-rhino-hitch-step/ or something similar although think I will probably use my tire steps although that creates the cargo issue again.

The online manual says the weight limit on the 2.4 l's hitch is 200 lbs/90 kg.

How will you operate the hatch with a spare tire attached? There should be a spare tire attachment for the hitch receiver, but again, how will you get the hatch open?

For maximum inconvenience, unless you are 7 feet tall, a roof basket with spare wheel and jerry cans may work. Or throw a step ladder inside the cargo area. ;)

The draw back to the roof basket is I then am unable to take my sups with me, more importantly cant secure them with the sup dawg so the moment work is over I can hit the water.

"What's 'sup dawg?"

;)
Its a sup holder that lets you lock the boards up and not need cam straps. Deaw back is it only holds two.

And then I use the thule get a grip for my paddles since it also allows them to be locked on the roof making theft much harder.

On occasion I have to just take it off and do cam straps if I am taking 4 boards or so. Other wise it is the truck for bigger outings, wish I could find the photos of it fully loaded.

Ill get a shot of my rack system in the next day or so and put it up. Waiting for it to be better weather. Hoping the get a grip will work for ski poles as well.
