Jeep. There's Only One
Heading to Quadratec about a month ago to meet the guys from MD Juan Company who make the Repli-tubs. It was pouring rain that day so I couldn't drive my open body Jeep.

The owners manual specifically says not to use a tow dolly, or transfer case damage could occur. Flat tow four down, or use a trailer. Something to do with a lubrication issue when one driveshaft is spinning, and the other one isn't. You could remove your rear driveshaft though.
I never tested the theory, but I used to flat tow for years before I bought the trailer.
Hope you have a great trip.

New Member Question
I've read through this amazing thread and have a question. I am planning to trailer my M38A1 to parades and car shows (I know, it's not a Jeep, it's a Willys). The total length is just over 11.5 feet and the wheelbase is 81" (6.75 feet). Based on your experience, what would be the best trailer length? The trailer I end up buying will be used for this vehicle only.

Mine is an 18'. Two feet of it being in the dovetail. So a 16' flat usable deck. I prefer the dovetail because it makes it very easy to haul other vehicles besides my Jeep when the situation arises. Usually emergencies. Friends, family, or their kids broke down somewhere.
14' would certainly work for you, but with the 16' of usable deck and my short TJ, I have a little extra room for other stuff. Like my BBQ!
