The Jeep YJ is a good place to start because before 1987, technically the CJ-7 and CJ-5 were not considered Wranglers. That’s a topic for a whole other page here on Jeep Wrangler Newbies!
So how much can a Jeep Wrangler YJ tow?
From the factory, the Jeep Wrangler YJ with the 4.0L inline six-cylinder engine, the towing capacity was listed at 2,000 pounds.
If You have a Jeep Wrangler YJ with a 2.5L four cylinder engine, your towing capacity is limited to just 1,000 pounds.
If you search the Jeep forums, you will see guys claim they tow vehicles of 2,700 pounds with their Jeeps because they have a hitch rated for 3,000 pounds.
My advice, don’t do it. It might work a few times, but trust the factory when they tell you your Jeep Wrangler YJ is only rated to tow 2,000 lbs.
