I'm not sure I'm familiar with a "rule" that you can only tow half of the manufacturer's tow rating. Care to elaborate?

In my limited experience and observation, some manufacturers and models have very conservative tow ratings and people tow right up to the limit without issue. Others have more optimistic ratings, in which you're probably better off leaving some margin. 50% seems a bit arbitrary to me, but perhaps you're referring to the Jeep in particular?
