They did a bobbed 2 1/2 ton on trucks or extreme 4x4 with air ride to haul there Sammy it allowed them to use a shorter ramp and adjust the height for road driving if the rig they were hauling was too tall

Remember, a 2.5 ton has less horsepower than a honda civic and you really want ear protection to drive it more than 30 minutes...

You have it all wrong. The TJ is the escape pod from the 5ton.

no reason for it to be. 5 tons are big trucks. A TJ should fit into even a 2.5 ton, if done right.
