Wrangler & Scooter

Try moving the passenger's seat forward, and put it down. Do you need the rear seat? Unbolt and remove it. The scooter should fit in from the rear...

I don't think you will find a wrangler at 3000#. Jeep lists the curb weight of a 2012 wrangler at 3897 -4997. 2 doer at the lower range depending on options. I used 2012 because that's what I used to tow.

I have seen some articles where they use a double hitch with the scooter on one hitch and the Jeep being towed on the other.
