  1. Our Jeep KJ Cherokee friends at the EU/UK can now tow with an N46 legal hitch solution. It would be great to have Paul, Laney and MikeK share their towing experiences with the new Tow-Trust hitch and ball receiver...Let us know your impressions of the hitch for towing and please share details on any additional tow equipment that is either mandatory at the UK or your personal preference for safe towing. Please note the trailer weight. Janet Brown shared earlier that the tow capacity of a KJ Cherokee at the UK is ample! Some, like Janet, tote live cargo, and horse toting is a unique challenge! We live at horse country in the Far West. (If you like horses, enjoy my short video on wild horses at northern Nevada!) I have been around horses and horse trailers since the early 'sixties. Take a peek at my article on towing a Jeep-toting trailer behind the magazine's heavy-duty hauler. This Dodge Ram 3500 4WD truck with 5.9L Cummins turbo-diesel power has towed trailer weights to 8,500 pounds and is capable of towing far more. There are devices that I consider essential for trailering safety, experience accumulated over four and a half decades of trailering. Curious how you approach towing, trailer brakes and controllers, tie-downs and overall trailering safety at the UK. What's required? What do you like in the way of additional trailering equipment? These are useful topics to discuss! I'm also very curious about the KJ Cherokee (our Liberty) diesel engines and their overall performance. Many KJ owners have the diesel option at the UK and EU. This is a higher tech, common rail diesel. It would be valuable to share your insights around these engines and trailering. Would someone care to start new topic related to turbo-diesel KJ power? Note: I have considered "swapping" a 2.8L VM Motori KJ Liberty turbo-diesel engine into our 1999 XJ Cherokee (U.S. predecessor model to the KJ Liberty/Cherokee). The engine would replace a 4.0L inline six gasoline powerplant. Would I be disappointed? Totally satisfied with the torque character? Your thoughts? Let's look forward to a much better KJ Cherokee experience at the U.K. in 2015! Tow-Trust has certainly changed the course as we turn this discussion toward towing at the U.K./EU and the U.S. Looking forward to sharing our experiences! Happy New Year to all our friends across the ocean! Moses
  2. Hi! I have narrowed my choice to one of two trailer models for hauling our Jeep TJ Rubicon: 1) Aluminum - ATC open deck 7,000lb (2 - 3,500lb easy lube torsion axles) - Can get what I think is a good deal but not sure if I should get a 16 foot or an 18 foot? My big concern is the payload issue: The 16 ft offers more payload: 988# Empty, 6012# Payload but a shorter deck. The 18 ft offers less payload: 1234# Empty, 5766# Payload but more deck! Price wise I have not seen a new aluminum trailer of this quality, at these prices, although we are still talking $5300 / $5500, respectively! 2) Steel - Kaufman open flat (not dovetail) deck 10,000lb (2 - 5,200lb spring axles) - Can have it custom made to my specs as follows: 17 foot Deluxe Flat Deck with added spare tire and rim and driver side removable fender. This steel trailer should be approximately $3600.00. What is the better trailer application for the Jeep? Also I like this weight distributing hitch: Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW http://www.etrailer.com/Weight-Distribution/Reese/RP66084.html Opinions and advice are most welcome. Say it like it is!! Thanks, Joe Mac
  3. There's never an excess of stowage space for off-pavement travel. Often, owners turn to specialty trailers for carrying necessities into the back country. For this purpose, the sometimes inexpensive surplus military trailers have become iconic, including the U.S. military M416 1/4-ton trailer for short wheelbase Jeep 4x4s and other short wheelbase tow vehicles, and the M415 1/2-ton trailers for the four-wheel drive club's support pickup truck to lug around. There is also an aftermarket with custom built trailers, specialty designs that mimic or exceed the virtues of the sturdy military trailers. These trailers often incorporate a tent as well, making family recreation more comfortable and practical. This forum is for off-road trailer enthusiasts and users to share information, equipment and hitch tips and upgrades with others. There is a distinct need here, and owners of these off-road trailers can be of great service to newcomers!—Moses Ludel Reno 4x4 and Hills Angels clean up Moss Lake above Reno, Nevada. Mark's Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler with widened track pulls a larger military-type off-road trailer at left. On the right, Craig's Jeep CJ-5 totes a compact multipurpose trailer. The U.S. Military M415 and M416 surplus trailers are popular for off-road use as are many custom designs. With an appropriate hitch system, Mark has been over the Rubicon and other tough Sierra trails many times—with the trailer in tow.
