The only trouble with fishtailing is when you have too much weight in the back of the trailer.

I have no trouble braking but i also put in ceramic brake pads. i believe the wangler is rated for 3K pounds, and 5k if you an LJ, right?

drive smart and your alright, also, a weight distribution hitch would go a long way in a vehicle with a short wheel base. (to add stability not capacity)

Oh i have been denied at uhaul, with the hardtop on too...
TJ is 2,000 pounds and LJ is 3,500 pounds.
