oh ... sorry i have ADD ... so I looked up that trailer ... you could make a comanchie trailer ... its really easy and pretty cheap. I just found a comanchie on CL for 500 and my buddy bought it. It wouldn't cost you much to convert. Here's a pic.

you just cut the frame at the front of the bed. Weld or bolt on some tow bars and paint to match ... DONE Tow bars cost 50-200$ but the onese for 50 are not bad, or you can home brew some really easy.

I use to love that ... and I even tryed to order it once but they were backed up like 4 months, so I didn't get it. But I'm so glad I didn't I saw it in person and I didn't like it at all. but the price is nice. I think it would be good if you put it on something other than the factory bumper.

The construction was good but it was so small and the bumper was left lacking. I think it would be good on a jeep that didnt really have a lot of mods ... but i have seen some pics with some pretty sweet jeeps that had it. ... the stock bumper is the main thing i don't like.
