Towing a Jon boat?

Recommended Posts

So I'm the proud owner of a 2016 DJ SXT. I'm also an avid outdoorsman who has a goal of one day owning maybe a Jon boat for fishing. I noticed the DJ has no tow package. How safe would it be to have a trailer hitch installed to tow around approximately 500lbs? Would it cause  transmission or engine issues? Or am I better off just strapping a kayak to my roof and calling it a day?

why not ask the dealership and or check your manual for an accurate answer.

Im pretty sure you should be able to tow a Jon boat with a Journey.  Hell, you could probably tow one with a ten speed bike!   What you have to consider are how often, how far, how much total weight.  Getting a hitch installed is no big deal (search the forum, multiple discussions). How you drive with it is.
