I believe that the official towing capacity for the short wheelbase Wrangler is 2,000lbs. The CJ7 should be the same since it has the same wheelbase. Wheelbase is the limiting factor. Vehicles with longer wheelbases are inherently more stable during towing, especially when braking. I personally wouldn't be afraid to tow a little over 2,000lbs though providing that I had some sort of brakes on the trailer.

What is the towing capacity of a 79 Jeep CJ7 with a Class III Hitch?

Not much. It will depend on your engine, transmission, do you have a lift. The biggest problem is that the CJ is so light that it becomes a control issue. When I used to tow my boat (20' bow-rider) my front wheels would be so light that they would slid in a turn. I could pull it 60 mph but had to slow way way down before I came to a turn or corner and dirt roads were even worse.

How do you turn the idle up on a 79 Jeep CJ7?

On my 79 CJ5 with a 304 V8 there is a adjusting screw on the side of thecarburetor (side that the throttle cable is on) where the throttle shaft goes in. You turn this in to increase engine speed. This should be the same on a CJ7. Of course this is providing the engine is tuned and running properly. Note: This is not the two air mixture screws on the bottom of the carb. Don't move these unless you know what you are doing.
