Well Im sick of driving the jeep on the highway up-north and I have free access to an 06 350 super-duty and a trailer we use for our New holland skid steer.

Since the trailer is old and rusty and has only seen highway a few times, what kinda things should I go over on it before the pig gig?

Tires are gettin replaced since they are prolly 10 years old and dry-rotted to shit, and brakes seem to work fine, what else should I check?

I figue Ill blast some fresh grease into the bearing buddies and take it for a short hway test since it hasnt seen hway in 5 years

Check how bad some of the rust has gotten, like if it has gone through or not. I'd also check the suspension and axle for similar issues.

Do a service on the wheel bearings.. ( clean inspect, repack) adjust all the brakes. Make sure the rust hasn't gotten too structural (crumbling frame rails). and Make sure all your lights are in working order..
