    I don’t have personal experience with off-road trailers. I seem to recall seeing some YouTube videos of a guy than ran the Rubicon with one similar to yours. I think it’d be doable but it would slow you down a bit. The Rubicon isn’t super technical but it is fairly relentless. Taking a trailer would be an adventure, so if you have that mindset and are prepared with tools, time, and patience for the possible complications ....

    Ah, ok. We are on the same page then. I’ve seen a handful of videos of folks tackling the Rubi w. Trailers like mine. Suffice to say this one is not a monkey see monkey do. Put a lot of effort into this restomod and don’t wish to do it unless I feel confident in my own skills. Either way, the more thought I put in to it, the less I like the idea of pulling a trailer for my first time. Would rather run without so I can make a more personally educated decision for the next time. I have “keep it simple stupid!” Blaring from one side of my brain

Rubi is a whole different animal, I built it with trails like the Rubi in mind, so I’ll be practicing and pushing as much as I can and make a legit gut decision as to whether I will pull it this year or wait til next. Honestly though, regardless, even if I do reach that comfort zone, I won’t bring it without the groups thumbs up as we all know the reality is that it will slow things down a smidge. I pushed the off camber shit today and that independent suspension shines. Between that, the load, and slow controlled driving it did not seem keen to flop. It will see that trail at some point.

    It can be done...I've seen the local Jeep club pull small trailers with construction tools to maintain the trail...

    I couldn't tell what kind of hitch you have; if it's a ball coupler, you might want to get a maxi hitch to increase articulation at the hitch...and be prepared to unhitch and winch the trailer over obstacles...it will definitely slow the group down...

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
