Banks Turbo Kit opinion
 
I am very happy with my rig the way it is here in FLA. but I am planning on traveling out west Moab , Monument Canyon.ETC.. and will be pulling a 5 wide [email protected] approx. 12000 lbs. I am concern about pulling up the mountain grades and that has me thinking about a Banks Turbo kit. I am reading currently through ROF old post from back when Banks came out with the kit but I am just up to the 100th page or so.
Love to here how it would work on my 2003 Rubi 5 speed 33's and 4.10's. I guess I should have just posted that..........YAR!!

You are going to need more than a Banks Turbo to pull 12,000# with a Jeep.
Tow rating is 3,500#.

I am hoping he meant 1200lbs cause a 12k lbs trailer would destroy the jeep and rip and tow hitch off the frame. Good luck stopping that much weight too lol.

Sorry about the extra zero. Though a plumber would know that a 5 wide [email protected] trailer is 1100 plus lbs. I guess your the Newbie.......

Please look at the entire post before you judge who is being the smart ass. It all started because of an extra -0-. I understood the first two lighthearted comments but Plummer1 with his sarcastic emoji was not called for. Back off. KMG
