    Looks like $4k will get you a good trailer I was looking at getting a trailer with drive over fenders, and 84 inches wide and 20 feet long. Was wondering if anyone has any advice on trailers? Doís, donít or anything Iím not thinking of that I should think about with a trailer?Attachment 298380

    Go with a goose neck deck over. I have a 20 foot bumper pull that is 102" wide and rated at 10400 gross weight. I had 5200 lb axles installed for the extra capacity. Great trailer, but the last 2 times I have pulled it with my JK on it, I have blown 2 tires and had another go flat. I could blame the roads between Texas and Maryland, as each time I was headed east between Memphis and Nashville. Some really bad roads in east Arkansas. My reasons are most bumper pulls have a smaller frame, but the big drawback is that 99% of them use a 15" or smaller tire. I have yet to find a tire over load range E which is 10 plys. With a goose neck deck over, you can get 16 inch or larger tires which provide a multitude of tires in a heavier load range. And the gooseneck trailer pull so nice. You won't even know it is there.

    Nice looking rig and thanks for your service!!

    I flat towed with my 2001 F150 for a number of years and it did great. Got to be a bit much though going up and down the mountains with the camper in the back AND the YJ on behind. Over the winter I picked up a 2009 F350 V10 from a friend of a friend. Truck has just over 100k on it and was babied it's whole life. Now I just need to freshen up my car trailer and get a bigger camper

    I would get a bumper pull trailer for that amount of weight. With that truck, it would pull like a dream. I got a PJ buggy hauler with 2 7k axels. Just got back from Moab and I live in the east, I could travel any speed with confidence. For me itís nice to keep your bed open for gear. Nice truck!

    Nice! I towed with my 03 F150 Supercrew for years trouble free and recently sold her with 200k on the ODO.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
