Deuce and a half bobbed flatbed tow rig??

So I was thinking of taking a 2.5 and bobbing it. Making a flatbed to tow a jeep. Any thoughts input? I guess the 1st question is would a jeep fit?

I know one of the weekend shows did it. I want to say Extreme 4x4 on Spike did it. The rig fit on the truck with some mods to the truck.

They're neat but top out around 55mph or so, noisy as all get out, bad mpg and need lots of mods to make it work. I'd like to have one, I'd hate to run it 50 miles down the interstate though.
