Hey,
Just bought a jeep CJ7 with the inlline 6 cyl. Can this tow my Mobius LSV or a recipe for disaster? Any one towing with a jeep now?

Jeep's (original CJs, Wranglers, etc) are terrible for towing large boats.

They have a low tow capability, are very light, have mediocre brakes, and have very short wheel base. They get flipped by boats all the time.

BAD idea.

I used to have a CJ7 it was good for many things however towing a boat is a bad idea just as Joe said.

I am going to agree as well on this one. While having the top and doors off pulling a beautiful Moomba around might look good in your dream, this is really not the vehicle you want pulling a boat like that around.

If you are a mile from the boat ramp, then no biggy, but if you are pulling it any kind of a distance, you are asking for an accident.

Just my $.02
