Trailer has been extended by 3' since this photo (now about 15' long). Use 4 axle straps from Macs Tiedowns to secure the rigs whenever we tow them. Ammo box at front holds the straps, etc. when not in use. Brakes on one axle only. Fenders are reinforced so you can stand securely on them when entering or exiting the rig.

Ive towed a few cars on my trailer, but no jeeps. I know it doesnt really matter, but my trailer is a 24ft(i think) tandem axle, with some side rails. I havent used it in a year or so, but when i get my next jeep, im going to tow it home, and ill post it on here!
nothin like having a truck and a trailer, well i dont have a trailer yet but i can always find one to borrow
i usually tie it down with two ratchet straps on the front and one across the back, either thru a d-ring on the hitch or thru the shackles. i would like to get chains but straps will have to do for now
During winter 2009 in Norway my Jeep stopped in middle of town in -20 degrees C. My brother had to pick me up with his Tahoe.
Had to do an expensive repair in the ignition/lock cylinder system.
The next morning:
16' Tandem Axle
3" Ratchet Straps and w/axle straps
It's for sale BTW!!!!!
Oh, and if I could do over, I would have gone over the tire with the straps. What a pain in the arse.

2005 LJ - In the mail, hope I like it. Everybody's doin it, here is the build: [url]http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/happy-wife-happy-life-05-lj-rubi-budget-build-1481914/[/url]
my friends CJ and my YJ. 4 straps on each in an x pattern. if you look at the back of the trailer you can see that it wasnt long enough to get both jeeps to fit, so i had to jack the front of my YJ up with a bottle jack and put the trailer ramps under the front tires to make the trailer long enough. id guess that the whole set up weighed about 10,000lbs, the trailer was not set up with brakes. it was kinda sketchy, especially through Cajon pass.
