Thats a sweet setup...

That trailer looks mint, you end up buying new ??

Looks like if you take the rack off you could get it in the garage height wise

OOOO... duh. brain hasn't come on yet... I decided I am going to make this trip without it. I have done some short highway/city trips with it and it seemed to do alright. This october run should decide for me if I need it or not.

Yeah I ended up going new. I couldn't find anything used with everything that I wanted.

Looks good man. Get the brakes hooked up?

Yeah, the weight distribution stuff would give you a much better ride than the airbags I mentioned, but $$ is right.

Yeah they are expensive, I was lucky that one came with my trailer when I got it. They do make up for the cost on those long trips when you want to go faster than 60mph

Kyle - Dang that thing is PURDY!! How long is it? It looks pretty big, unless the XJ is that much smaller than the ZJ.

And the WDH is a great investment - I was doing 80 almost all the way home after last trip.

[SIZE="1"]2008 WK Overland HEMI - Modern Blue Pearlcoat
Fully loaded with slush mats of course.

MUST GO! 1994 Limited ZJ 5.2L V8 - Light Driftwood Satin Glow
It's a 94 5.2L Limited - trxus 33's on 15x7 steelies, 4.56s w/ front OX and rear trutrac, NP242 swap, novak shift kit, Kevin's ultimate 4.5" lift + ACOS, ARB front bumper w/warn M8000, rear tomkin machine bumper w/ tire carrier, kevin's hardore railz, kevin's ultimate tc skid, kevin's trackbar conversion, rusty's gas skid, flexalite efan, Kolak's performance ignition and brake upgrades. ViAir OBA, custom storage/sub box and I'm sure there's a bunch of other things I'm missing. Everything is a little over 3 years old with less than 10K miles. Looking to get around $4k.

It's an 18' trailer. Figured I should go a little big for the future... Maybe have an ATV up there with it..

After this run when the funds build back up I will look into the weight Distro hitches.. or I will just steal yours Drew..
