Guys,
I am considering an 07-09 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 3.7. Before everyone starts telling me to look at a F250, I only tow a total of 4 miles per year. About 2 miles to the ramp in spring and 2 miles home in fall. The boat sits on a shore station all summer and the dealer is across the street from me (literally across the street and they will come to my dock to fix small things). My question is this; is the Jeep with the 3.7 capable of pulling a 20-21 foot boat out of the water? (The ramp is pretty clean, and concrete) Has anyone had any experience with one?

My situation is as follows;

I am selling my 09 Jetta TDI, my boat and my two snowmobiles. That should leave me with around 50-55 to spend on a car and boat. I could get a jeep with the 3.7, less than 20k miles, for less than 20K. That would leave me 30-35 + maybe some extra to spend on a boat. I commute about 350 highway miles per week, and I would like near 20mpg (the jeep barely gets this).
