Tried that first!
Suspect it works on a 1500 Pick up.
But my 2500 diesel long bed, with a towing suspension only settles so far, onto the overload spring....
until you get WAY over gross!
Agree, Any sensible person SHOULD be concerned about tongue weight. But after asking several of my club members how they determine where to place the jeep on their 18' or 20' trailers, I'm not so sure!
Most common response I get..... 1/2 to 3/4 of Wrangler in front of axles and judge by feel from there.
I used this system; See method 2........HERE
This position, with 150 lb tool box on front, gives me 12% of trailers 6100 lbs. on tongue........
