is the 2.0 and 2.7 engines swappable? I would like a bit more power.

Also, how much weight can I tow with my sporty? Like a 20ft travel trailer.

I would use an electronic brake if possible over 1500 pounds. I've tow more than this regularly on flat ground during the summer. But 2000 Lbs is quite risky on mountains.

Nice! The pics with the Washington plates have familiar scenery.. I'm from Easter Washington/NorthIdaho area. That area looks like central Wash.. Who owns the Wash plate kia? Might be close enough to me for a meet up. Impressive pics.. I knew they were capable of towing a good amount, however after seeing this I'd suggest anyone actually towing that much aught to get the lift to aid the weight load. Especially if your running oversized tires.

Yeah, I'd really recommend that you NOT tow anything over 2500 lbs, ever...

I'm speaking from experience, I nearly lost my rig when I was making a dump run with 3200lbs. I had the trailer loaded properly and I was going about 50 when I started the death sway, Luckily, I was headed for an uphill that I could safely slow down on.

If you find your self in a sticky situation while towing (such as a sway), NEVER hit the brakes, you'll spin out...

I do however tow my 1100lb tent trailer several thousand miles a year, and average 18.5mpg doing so! I run a small cooler on the trans, an electric radiator fan, and a 3" lift w/ 235/75s.

Well after several runs to the metal scrap yard, my 2 door weighs 2840-ish empty with a 1/8 tank of gas. With my camper and all the crap associated with the trip, my set-up weighed 4120, and that was with a full tank of gas. Mines an auto 2wd btw...
