Best way ti tow my Yj with Zj

Hi I have some question about towing. Will my stock 93 ZJ with the 5.2l tow my stock 94 YJ 2.5l with hard top? I live in Cleveland and have a place to store it and work on it in the Toledo area. Was wondering if I use a tow dolly if it will work? Or if I use have to use a trailer. I will be getting one or the other from u-haul. I just want to know if it is doable. Thanks in advance

You can't tow a YJ on a dolly unless you disconnect the rear driveshaft (assuming you tow from the front). You'd be better off with a trailer or using a tow bar.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tow a YJ with something as light as a ZJ, but that's just my personal preference. Depending on the hitch rating and towing capacity of your ZJ, it might be possible. You'll have to check your manual for those specs.
