Re: Pulling CJ-7 with a Durango
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] As I'm sure you noticed, we went all oveer this Jeep tow and Jeep weight question. I polled a few Jeepers and the numbers were shocking[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]. CJs with the 258 and a hardtop are about 3300 dry, and with a 304, a top, and doors are right at 4K. THAT's why I'm workin' up a design for a lighter trailer, because by the time you add trailer, it's THREE TONS.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] My 4.0 Grand Cherokee did OK though at 135 miles and a LOT of uphill stuff![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
