Default Attaching jeep to trailer

Picked up a car hauler a couple weeks ago to haul the cj7. It's 18' with a wood deck. Has stake pockets and a couple D rings up front. I've never hauled my rig on a trailer and want to set this up for quick, consistent loading. Wondering if I should be attaching to clevises on bumper or to axle. ie. sprung or unsprung weight. Also do you recommend using chain with binders, tire webbing or just straps. I was thinking of mounting a drive over chock kind of like a tandem axle wheel chock to drive front tires over so that it's always positioned in exactly the same spot, too. Anyone do this before? Any problems you can think of? Thanks in advance.
