I would do some in depth research, will the 21RS really suit you and your families needs? will there be enough room in it as opposed to a larger unit? We had a '02 Salem 27' bh lite, weighed 4415 dry. towed with a '99 Ram quad 4x4 with the 5.2L V8 and 3:55 gears. it preformed satifactorily. once we went to truck in sig. this past April, it was night and day difference. when we got the Outback in Sig, even with the added weight, and length( its 32' bumper to toungue.)it actually tows better than the shorter , and lighter Salem. we are very happy now. but this is after 7 years, 6 campers , and 3 different tow vehicles. so you can see why I say do alot of research!! will you be upgrading vehicles in the near future? if so, and you live in relativly flat country, or not towing thru alot of hilly areas, you should be fine even with the 25RSS. your JGC has more HP than my 5.2L did. what rear end gear do you have? 3:55 or 3:92? 3:92 would be great for that unit and you can go to the LT tires as Camping has suggested. we had Dunlop Rover AT LT 265/75/16's on the '99 and loved them. this new truck has the GoodYear Wrangler HP 20's on it , and they only come in p serires , but so far they are fine, even towing. Good luck in what ever you decide, Jerry
