I bought one of the HF 4x8 tilt trailers about 15 years ago. Put a 3/4" sheet of plywood down for a bed and built a couple different rack systems depending on if I'm hauling dirt, firewood, pellet fuel, riding lawnmower, camping gear, or a boat. Been beating and banging it around ever since. I did upgrade the 4.8x8 tires to a heavier weight range 5.8 x8 since it seemed the limiting factor for the 1000 lb load rating was the puny tires. It pulls real easy behind the Jeep. Haven't tried climbing boulders like some of the pictures in magazines, but I regularly use it on rough dirt/rock roads. Drug it through the mud once, but the trailer axle is about the same height the Jeep axles so no problem. Worst problem with the 8-foot bed is going over big humps or dips. I can get the back end to drag if I try.
