wanting a trailer hitch, questions about capacity
so i have a YJ with the 6 and want to tow my 79 vette with it. aside from having a class III hitch, will the jeep hold up? i know it isnt rated for it but will it hold up? can it handle the weight? the vette is 3400 lb, plus any kind of trailer. thoughts? thanks
Ive done it with my tj before with no issues. Just wondering why the yj wouldnt. I know what its rated for but power wise it can handle it right? I towed a car on a two wheeled dolley with my tj. Brakes fine, eccelaration fine. Just worried about the short wheel base with this car cause its a bit heavier than the other one. Thank you
That kind of load would be downright scary in a TJ or YJ IMO. I have pulled up to the 2000lbs in my TJ and would not want to carry more, add in the bigger tires, your brakes and wheelbase were not designed for that kind of load, get a truck it's what they are made for.
