OK, what I know is you not only need the 2.4 but also 4x4. I towed a 6x12 U-Haul mostly full with no problems at all. I don't know what the load weight was though. I had a Draw Tite class 3 hitch installed with a 2" receiverHas anyone tried towing with their Renegade? If so, how heavy of a trailer have you towed and what engine/transmission combo do you have? How does the Renegade perform while towing?
