I have a 2017 242x e-series and was thinking of towing with a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon - any thoughts?

I tow my 212x and it hauls it like a beast. No issues holding 65-70mph on the highway and getting 12mpg. HOWEVER, I surely wouldn't do a 242x. Likely wouldn't even tow a new 212x. Those things have gained quite a bit of weight compared to mine.
