Not kidding. My brother (he has an '86) and I took everything off it that still worked and wasn't completely rusted on. The tub and frame were very bad, unsafe to drive. Engine was pretty much done. The steering column was off and two wheels were frozen. This dash was off the new rig and was ripped and jagged and only had half the gauges. I wanted to keep the rims, but didn't have the time or means to do so. It was a sad day, but it was too far gone.

Oh. Pictures are deceiving. Looks like it's still a nice CJ in the pic.

The new setup looks like a weekend warrior. Did you have to reinforce the ramp door, or did it home the Jeep's weight without any issues?

Well MPond the jeep weighs 3,900 lbs and the wheelbase is long enough that only two tires are on the door at one time.I don,t know the load ratings on the door,but so far it hasnt had any problems.I had seen a guy at a big jeep event and he was hauling an LJ in his WW 32ft bumper pull trailer and i asked him if he had any problems loading it.He said his jeep weighed 4,200 lbs and that he been doing it for a couple of years with no problems.My trailer has a tow rating of cargo at 4,300 lbs with the three axles and most of the weight is on the very front axle.My trailer is a 5th wheel which i think is safer than a bumper pull.

Thanks!

I have a Next Level 5th-wheel toy hauler, and I normally carry a long-travel sand car in it. But I've thought about putting my LJ in there instead.

Holiday Rambler told me something similar about only having half of the Jeep's weight on the door at any given time, and that it would be fine. But I've never seen it done in person, so I thought I'd ask.

Not sure if this counts since it's not my jeep - yet. Saw it in a passing by. It doesn't have an engine but it's hard to turn down a flat fender. I didn't like how they strapped it down. Don't care if it messed up the finish but it could tweak the frame or suspension some? What do you think?

At least it's good to go and a quick delivery to my house.
