    the wife and I have a 1994 ZJ with v8 and 4x4. I have a bagged and bodydropped MAZDA (minitruckin thing). It is a show truck and if i take it to a show less than 100 miles ro so I will drive it. However come spring time I am planing on hitting some long distance shows like in Miss., Tenn., Va., and some other places. Would this ZJ be able to tox my mazda on a small car hauler, without any problems?

    What are some things that other guys with ZJ's tow?

    all it takes is a bit of research, for your 94 v8, 6500 pound towing capacity

    RE: unlimited ?

    find out the tongue weight of the trailer with the mazda on it. I have a friend whose family towed a 22' sea ray with a 4.0 zj and a 5.2 zj for 2+ hrs, no problem on either however the 5.2 handled coming up the launch ramp with the boat on the trailer much better. Does the zj have the factory tow package?

    keep in mind if this has been working so far for you, when you go with bigger tires, you're talking about something completely different. either keep the stock rims/tires around for towing, or think of something else. just a heads up.

    RE: Re: RE: Zipper on a soft top?

    Is it an Automatic transmission? IF so, make sure it has a descent sized transmission cooler (a seperate one from the radiator).

    Then...go for it. I've got a friend who has towed his 5,800 lb Toyota (which weighs a LOT more than your Mazda would weigh) behind his ZJ. It wasn't all that fast up hills, but take your time and it will be alright.

    we pull a 6800 pound trailer with ours , and it can do a little more.it pulls that trailer as good as our 1 ton truck acctully a little better than it. you might want to go to a trailer dealer ship and ask them. they will tell you exactally what is the limit.

    p.s. i cant spell i case you didnt notice

    RE: girl + jeep

    Looking at that pic with the camper-trailer, that ZJ 95 posted, you should have no problem... I know that my XJ weighs just under 4,000 pounds, that trailer is a lot more than that, and I am pretty sure that the Mazda weighs less than an XJ, so you should be fine :)

    the feeling's forever...
