My total length is 66 ft with the 20ft stacker.
YUP....more than 850 miles from lousiana to new mexico.
Any idea what the fine could have been?

I carry spare drive shafts, half shafts, etc so what has broken lately? Steering box and radiator! Never the stuff you have on hand. Use the stacker for race and street cars.

The H1 Hummer on a heavy utility trailer is the "light" load I pull so I now know to get the twin screw based on your advice. Also think 500+hp might be wise as well. Looks like I am sorta cutting out a lot of possibilities which may narrow my choices?
Our ('12) Jeep Wrangler (sport) w/ soft top tips the scale around 4200 lbs - if it weren't for the rear view cameras we wouldn't even know it was back there.

Ours is mostly a "mall crawler" we've wheeled it several times (virginia, arizona & central texas). Ive boosted it 1.5 inches but am about to lift it 3 inches - I've been waiting to wear out the factory tires from towing it behind the coach.

Our Wrangler is a manual trans, but all Wranglers have a manual transfer case - so Mopar/Jeep says tow 'em in park (auto) or gear (manual) and put the transfer case in even makes a factory harness that uses weather tight connectors (plugs into the factory harness) and allows direct connection to the primary tow vehicle 7 pin connector for use of the factory (jeep) tail extra wiring or lights needed.
