towing with YJ.

Does anyone do any towing with their jeep? I need to know if my YJ can handle towing my race car that weights about 1600 lbs. I have a class 2 hitch on it now. I plan on getting a trailer but I am waiting till I have more info on what my jeep can handle. I have been towing it with a tow bar and it is taking the toll on the steering of the car. thanks

Re: towing with YJ.

Depends on your engine, clutch and brakes, I have a four banger and it has no power and the clutch slips when pulling a bass boat. If your brakes are as bad as mine with th 33" tires I wouldn't haul that much behind it. I don't really tow anything with my Jeep, I use my brother's Bonneville for the heavy stuff.
