Ok we were going to tow my jeep from indiana to key largo fl with a dodge 1500 or gmc 1500, we opted out of that. Well got lucky my dad felt the need to dump the dodge for a real truck and bought a 2004 f250 diesel
So we have a tow rig now. So I know the truck can do it, but want to make sure we set it up right. We have a car trailer which hooks up to a reese hitch. Figure put the jeep on 80/20 with 80% of the weight up front 20% in back of the axles. Strap it down at the axles with the huge straps we use for construction and such,(not cheap something like 3 or 4 inchs wide), then use some to tie down at the bumpers to hold the body down to avoid the susp moving.
We also have a gooseneck trailer, something like 15 to 20 feet long, it is heavy, but not to heavy for the truck. It has heavy duty hooks for straping aswell.
SO which trailer and is my plan for strapping it down ok, also would chaines on the axles and straps ont he body be better?
Both trailers are tandom axle aswell, I see benifits to both, the only bad thing about the car hauler is there is no hooks, we normally just strap to the frame but we have yet to haul anything this big. What kid of hooks can I add to help with this
