XJ HAULIN' Pictures !!

I know we have a large thread about rockclimbing and mud-dawbbin' jeeps, but how about, haulin' ? I am sure many of you haul somethign behind your jeep from time to time... get us a picture !

I haul a 2000lbs 2 horse trailer, I have a class III-IV Draw-Tite Hitch with 2" receiver, fully adjustable knuckle with load adjusting bars, and anti-sway bar system. The trailer has full brake system activated by a draw-tite Activator II system, on 6 pins connection. The Jeep is normal Height mounted on Rancho RS5000 Shocks all around, with Half-Leaf Add-a-leaf for additional load help on the rear.

Here is the picture of the setup.

Stock suspension, dana 35 on bumpstops, trailer hitch 1/2 inch off of road. No trailer brakes or lights. Feels like a tugboat going down the road with roughly 3.5 pounds on the front tires. Luckily I only needed to go about 5 miles.

Man you were killing that poor truck. You had a tandem trailer. Why didn't you just move the car on the trailer further to the rear to lighten the load on the tongue of the trailer? The trailer is designed to take the weight of the load and destibute it to the dual axles and not the tow vehicle.

This usually has a '01 XJ in front of it, but here's a pic with the '98 ZJ.



Just your average Coleman pop-up. Those little tires have spun about 40,000 miles in the last couple years.:clapping:

They also tow a 18' trailer (ATVs, etc) and a 17' ski boat from time to time, but the Durango usually gets the honors.

Reminds to get a picture the next time the boat is on the back..


Doesn't look as bad as the Waggy, but I have a 21" grady white with a tandem axle, with brakes, its not bad towing, I just don't go down the ramp with it.

Where I launch it has a tractor for that duty..

I dont know, how much your Zj can tow, but keep in mind what or who ever you have in the vehicle also counts in that weight. Besides how it may look with the trailer, you have a fair amount of power. Its stopping that can get out of hand!! I drive an 18 wheeler, and see alot of unfortunate situations, because people are towing overloaded trailers and rigs that cant handle the most simple traffic situations. Remember, on the trail or the road, drive with your head, and not your foot. Take care
