I've decided I would like to move into an RV trailor. It is 25 ft, and wheighs a little less than 5000LBS. My 94 YJ 4.0 is the only vehicle I have. Will it be able to do the job? I plan on finding a place, and setting the trailor. I'm not driving all over heavens creation with it.

You might just find someone with a truck to move it for you if it's local.

COnsodering the trailer limit that Jeep reccomends for most CJ, YJ and TJ is 2K, you would be pushing it. Also, it's not just can your Jeep move it, is it going to stop it in an emergency?

If you don't fight for the trails, there won't be any trails to fight for.

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....

Shoot, Tuesday I saw a Toyota Corolla pulling a 14 ft box truck. Maybe the pedal was stuck, and they were using the truck to keep the corolla from taking off. Saw it at Golden Glades, then a bit later heard about it at Oakland and 95.
No more Jeep. :(

Thank you to all of those whom have helped me through the years. There have been some amazing rides and events.
