Trail Junkie, uses my 5th wheel flat bed all the time to haul two CJ's on, he hauled two to the Pig Gig last year being pulled by a Dodge. He had to be a little creative, and put two wheels up on the goose neck, but it semed to work fine.
Of course he's a truck driver, and I heard he's going to Canada to haul on the Ice Roads this winter.:tonka: So of course, he's a better driver then most anyone on here.

My father used to pull our older backhoe with his 2500 dodge. It pulled fine but make you wonder once and a while on the back roads. I would not hesitate to pull 2 rigs on a bumper trailer as long as you could get the weight right. But the rig I have is only 3000lb so a lot lighter then most.

Here is my setup: 99 F250 with helper airbags in the back, 32' deck tandem axlw tag. Been allover with it like this towing the XJ and a heavy ass J20.




New setup with 5" of lift and 37's, been to TN and up to Drummond towing the XJ with the wrangler or the XJ with the J20. Tows fine up to way faster than it needs to be. However when I get a damn free weekend it is going gooseneck and getting another axle under it just for good measure.

This is how I tow 2 jeeps! Works well, plus gives you a place to sleep if the weather gets nasty.

I need something like this. That way I can load the ZJ on the flatbed and tow my camper behind it.
