You are in luck. You won't find a better trailer for hauling 2 Jeeps. It is the one pictured a couple posts up with the 2 XJ's loaded on it.

I had one, Had it since new, sold it with 160k on it. When it had 104k on it i replaced the torque converter, checked out the rest of the trans, it was like new so it went back in. I towed many many heavy arse trailers withj noe problems. I did have working brakes on all of the trailers. One time I did have to drive it with the OD turned off, I was out east going up and down hills. That is one place i would think there would be alot of trans shops. I don't think I was on a level road for two days.

run gauges...mainly egt and trans temp.....you are non I/C and the stock down pipe brings the suck for egt's...it will do fine just watch the temps and the OD off button will be your friend on the hills... try and keep egt's under 1200
