Boat towing?
Okay guys I have an 89 yj 4.2 and I plan on taking my 16 foot bass boat and I am a little nervous looking at these other posts on towing a boat. Should I be nervous with towing it? If so what can I do to make the ride up to the lake as safe as possible without towing with another vehicle? The boat cant weigh more than 2000 pounds but ill double check the specs.

Okay the boat weighs roughly 1400 pounds with trailer, gear and motor. I'm not nearly as nervous anymore, I will still play it safe and throw it into 4lo when deploying and re trailering

Yeah that's gotta be it so as long as I'm easy on the gas pedal I should be safe.
