How do I load a non-running Jeep onto a rental haul trailer. Tires have air.

Any advice on how to load up a Jeep onto a trailer. Jeep not running.

You could get a half dozen guys to push. [Hint, pushing on the top of a tire cuts the needed force in half.]

I have a come a long I can try. Maybe pull it out onto harder ground first with the truck. I thought about putting a battery in and using the starter in low gear to turn engine over and walk it up there. . I heard that trick but never tried it.

I moved a dead Cherokee one time by backing my Wrangler up to it and pushing in reverse with the spare tire as a buffer.

That works. I've pulled vehicles into my garage that way.

Strongly recommend NOT to try to push with another vehicle. Too easy to slip and damage both of them.

I have done this with a dead vehicle in a mud hole. Assuming you have a manual transmission, it should work.



push the Jeep up the ramps as far as you can, put it in 1st, and start cranking. Don't run the starter longer than 15 seconds at a time.



You may need to bypass any clutch/starter bypass switch.

Paperwork will ruin any military force.

That's the way I've always done it, just watch the fenders on the trailer with tow rope.
