With no trailer brakes, I'd say the empty trailer is probably pushing the limit of what's safe. With a vehicle on it, I wouldn't even consider it.

I have brand new rotors and ceramic pads all around. But it really isn't all that bad. I just drive like a grandpa in town so I can stop suddenly if need be and leave plenty of space between me and a car on the highway. Lol

Here's pics of my jeep at the junkyard before unloading the car I took there. Jeep did awesome. New all aluminum radiator took the temp from running at 195 once warmed up to 190. Don't have a trans temp gauge but I know my deep pan I added a while back helped. Never hesitated with downshifts or anything like that. Pulled it great overall for an 18 year old rig

And while I was there I got a tranny cooler from a 4.0 to mount on the driver side as a power steering cooler and a Wj horn since mine doesn't work half the time. And an antenna cable so I can have a radio again. Sadly all the Wj e fans were gone. Gonna have to check back for that one lol.

No wonder why the engine would hit the hood under a load.....

Oil changed, tires rotated, and everything greased. Have a 7 hour trip tomorrow, and the same trip back on Saturday but towing a Uhaul. Now just have to clean it out and make room!

I'm really tempted to rip out the carpet in the cargo area and bedline that as well, and just have one of those form fitted super thick rubber mats from Quadratec or some place as extra coverage. I like the carpet up front though, especially after coming back from the beach after sunset
