First you have to determine if the cargo will fit in the YJ or if a trailer is necessary. If you use a trailer then the weight to volume mass will be less and you might be able to transport her unless its a 4 banger then all bets are off........

Perhaps we could organize a collection and send you some money to buy her a bus ticket.

I've given your question more thought. As you specifically ask about "towing", yes, I believe your Jeep will be capable but why subject your Jeep to all the wear and tear? First ask National Geographic if they would feature the event on their TV series "Monster Moves." You might even be able to negotiate some management fees so you can buy more Jeep toys.

And remember. Pictures or it didn't happen.

Have her run alongside until she's down to triple digits.
