No problem in jump starting a + ground vehicle.  Hook + to + and - to 
-.  Then fire it up.  But remember, on a + ground vehicle + is ground 
and - is hot.  Conversly, on a - ground vehicle, - is ground and + is 
hot.  SOOOOO, don't just hook up ground to ground and hot to hot.  
Look at the battery terminals and hook up + to + and - to -.  
Otherwise ------ all the smoke leaks out!!!
