Your Jeep on a car hauler

Please show pics of your Jeep on a car trailer. I just bought one. No more flat towing.

Throw in specs of trailer, and how you secure your Jeep if you like.

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!

This pic - believe it was a 24' car hauler. Looking to buy an 18' for myself one of these years.

4 straps - X pattern front and rear.

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

Jeep stopped in snowy weather.

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:

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.
