Anyone have any experience with Telluride SUV?

I will have to replace my 07 Armada soon. I'm thinking this Kia has potential.

I went ahead and bought it—2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD. Great tow vehicle, for this old lightweight MC anyway—and my wife likes it too, a real bonus!

Iíve been extremely impressed with the Discovery 5 towing the X23. Itís equipped with air suspension so it levels itself more than shown here with the key off. 8,500 lb max tow rating.

I know it's a large boat, but that X23 makes that Disco look small

Looks great!

The Michelins will dry rot before they wear out.

With all due respect, why lift a tow vehicle to make it more unstable while towing almost 4000 lbs?

Iíve towed with an 8-10Ē lift before. I didnít feel unsafe or unstable at all. Just extra wind resistance and bigger tires.

I drove a lifted 4Runner for over 9 years and was towing a boat larger than a ProStar all over the place and never had a single issue.
