Best Way to Level a Jeep Wrangler Towing a Travel Trailer

Question:

I have 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a 4 inch lift. What type of spacer and coil rite setup would I need for my jeep. I am towing a travel trailer.

I have a better solution that I can provide for you, but Firestone does not have spacers available for their Coil Rite system anyway so suspension enhancement would not work.

What you would want is a weight distribution system. A WD system also levels the tow vehicle like suspension enhancement, but it does so by distributing some of the trailer tongue weight up to the front axle of the vehicle. This greatly helps handling and braking.

The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use.

Once you know your tongue weight you will want to check out the link I attached that has all of the weight distribution systems we carry. You will be able to select your tongue weight from the filters to see what would be rated for your setup.

Since you have a lift kit you would most likely need a drop shank like the part # RP3344 which will allow the setup to be leveled properly.
