Alright, I get it - UNCLE!!!

I expect to have to do a little long-distance towing before long and thought it might be a good idea. Then when I saw how doggone thick the stuff was I started thinking that the cold weather would not be too far off, and...

Anyway, good to know that it's OK. Thanks.

It will feel like driving through oatmeal for the first 200ft in the negative numbers lol. After that it's fine.

Used the Liberty to haul my boat out to go fishing. I liked it compared to my full size chevy truck as I could still see the boat in my mirrors as it started down the ramp. I could only see the boat in my side mirrors on the chevy when cornering and the boat/trailer would disappear from the rear view on a steep boat ramp. The boat isn't a big Lund but a welded aluminum flat bottom Grizzly 1654 and the Jeep pulled it up the hills as well as my old chevy ever did
