How do i get a 46 willys on a trailer?

So Today I payed for 2 1946 Willys CJ 2's. Well 2 of my buddy's and my dad and I took my buddy's trailer with us to go get them. Trailer is 24' and has ramps on the back but there pretty a steep. So we backed the truck to the 2 jeeps and broke them loose from the ground sense they have been sitting and also it's 5 degrees out. But ones we did get them broken loose some of the tires wouldn't turn ( could be because there destroyed or bearings are siezed etc.) so we tried using a come a long but it wasent long enough so we used some ratchet straps to lengthen it. But I jaut don't feel safe using the come along to try and pull the front of the jeep onto the trailer. Anyone have any suggestions? ( I bought the 2 to the far left, both of them for $450)

Jackknife the trailer and use another truck to pull them up onto it if you don't have a winch

Until I put a winch on my trailer, I used a 2-ton come-a-long and chain.

Years ago I had to move my uncle's mobile home and unfortunately trees had grown up on each end so that hooking a truck to it was not an option. A friend of mine who works for a building moving company suggested that I jack up the the mobile home and slide plywood under the tires . We then took buckets of water and poured it on the plywood until we had a nice layer of ice. All we had to then was pull it sideways til we cleared the trees and was able to hook a truck up to it. I was surprised how easy it slid on the ice. Don't know if that helps in your situation but it may be worth a try. Good luck, Dave

might be easiest/cheapest to just get a manual winch put on the trailer. i'm thinking of the manual, load winches on semi trailers. get 20' of 10k# strap and chain to make up the rest of the distance and you should be good to go. something like this: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too..._397728_397728
not the best option, but cheap and fast to bolt on your trailer.

I ended up getting a 2 ton come along and used a chain and that worked good. Second jeep the land owner used his front loader!

The ice/slick plywood sounds like a winner to getter done.
