Do you guys think I could tow a CJ7 from Vancouver to Kitimat approx.1500KM with my XJ?
XJ is a 88 4.0 auto. I'm thinking of using a dolly.

My XJ towed a YJ on a dolly for 700 km from Quesnel to Langley. Kinda tough on some of the hills, engine got hot for a while, till we cleaned the mud out of the radiator.

You definately need a dolly and make sure you get a dolly that has brakes on it, stopping on a hill was downright dangerous without them, I'd neve do that again. XJ brakes are marginal for the XJ by itself, they are definately not sufficient for two Jeeps.

Thanx for the info. The dolly Im thinking of using has surge brakes. Do you think that will be good enough?
