Default JK towing capacity

I believe that early 2 door JKs had a higher towing capacity, 1.5 tonne I think.
Can anyone confirm this and actually how high it was, when it was reduced to and to what capacity. Thinking about buying one to tow our newly acquired second hand Tvan.

Are you sure thats correct, I thought they where 3500 pounds not KG, there is no way I would be towing 3500kg with a wrangler.

That's a UK table not Aus. The CRD JKU here is 2300kg and 3.6 is 2000kg
