Never tow anything while driving a vehicle with a four-cylinder engine.
That too lol, but going up inclines the short wheelbase would worry me..
It may be okay but I barely have a year of driving experience with no towing experience so I'm on the safe side

It's going downhill where it would make a difference. Wind would make it bad too.

Today I drove my Jeep for the first time since I started my WJ knuckle swap. Now I need to get the final things for rebuilding the rest of the front axle, and figure out why the passenger caliper is dragging. I'm going to try running a thin wire through the brake hose on that side and see if there's a crimp in the hose.

100 Characters is not enough to have an interesting/relevant signature.

Downhill because of brakes?
And wind I can see, especially with the surface area of the side but I'm guessing lol.
Good luck

Looks good in theory but I don't know how you'd put it into practice

Not the sharpest bulb in the box....

My Jeep is possessed with the goal of making me lose my religion....

That is Kick Azz Kewl. What an awesome way to start the day. Too bad I'll never know that feeling of pride and bonding with my son over our YJ being on the YJOTM calendar...

I'm just over them. I'd like to replace them with a hi-line.

I much prefer cloaks to hiline, hi lines are too plain I think, I like the uniqueness to the cloaks. I'm saving up for one day lol

But hilines do a great job and can look just as good
