Do you think you will have any issues when it comes to backing the trailer up? It looks like the coupler will bind.

I run the same setup. When backing up it acts like a 2 inch ball.

In which position do you think it will bind?

I reversed with mine in this position without any binding whatsoever. You will smash the trailer into your jeep before it binds.

If you do have any binding the solution is simple...grind the center block where you are getting too much contact. That is if you haven't welded the bolts yet.

My wife kept me busy all day , and we had santa assembly tonight . But I still managed to get the tub bolted down and the tongue fully assembled .



Now that its on its wheels I am starting to figure a few things out . The first thing is I have to add leaf or two back into the spring pack . It is so soft right now that any weight in the bed will make it start to squat . The second thing is that I need some bigger tires ! It looks so funny on the 235s , but all in due time. Maybe I can hitch up to it and tow it around the yard tomorrow . Hope all of yall have a Merry Christmas .

Test towed around the yard today to see how things worked.




I didnt get up to much speed , but it towed nice and straight without any bouncing . I drove up all over and even backed up the gulley with no issues. The
gspup aka Mike multi axis coupler worked great and is very easy to hook up . The trailer is back in the garage and ready for the bodywork to start , but it was nice to tow it today .
