Weld in a gooseneck hitch to the front of it. Maybe fabricate some regular ramps for it. Would cost a bit but shouldn't be too difficult. Pull it with a 3/4 on up. what does that thing weight in at? I would think those tires would be very expensive to replace.

Very cool trailer, but way overkill for moving a Jeep around. Can the front "wing" be cut off? It looks like it has a pintle on the front, no? Air brakes or electric?

What do you tow it with..... http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthr...&highlight=6x6

5 ton dump truck is what they gave me to tow one of them. Mine had a big box on top of it that we filled up with explosives and ammunition..
