    Looking for a Trailer! Read a few pages in here first....

    This trailer may be right up your alley.

    Scott-after you lock your coupler, what do you do with your safety chains? Thieves will cross the safety chains, like you are supposed to do anyway, twist the chains up, attach them to their hitch, and drive off. You donít need to use the coupler to steal a trailer....

    yah, Huck you newbie, Rubicon drivin', mall Cruisin', bling-bling, bolt-on, got no drivin skillz, drove thru a AutoZone with a crap magnet attached, H2 wannabe, poseur! Pay attention!
    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    I watched a lot of different videos showing how easily most coupler locks were defeated (including one shown above), before I purchased mine. Iíll use this one as a simple demonstration because they break most of the bigger selling locks and the show their own. Yes, I own one of their locks, and yes, this compilation video helped to sell me on the purchase.

    If they want it bad enough they will get it. A member on here had his stolen and they used a battery powered grinder to cut off the locking device.

    I dont lose sleep on mine. If it gets stolen Ill file a HO claim and pay my deductible.

    I do just leave the safety chains a-dangling. Had not heard about that. Wouldn't the trailer just slam into the back of their tow rig the first time they try to bring it to a stop?

    Nope, not at all. Just have to twist the chains and tighten them up, before hooking up the trailer. Easy to drive off with it and only have an inch or two play in your chains.

    Edit: check it out sometime. Iíve moved trailers, this way, in the past. The whole idea of crossing your chains is to keep the coupler from dragging on the ground. Tighten up the chains and they tow pretty well.

    I thought about the chains too.... Their product is nice but wonder why the lock is aluminum...that'd be where I pry or angle grind.

    I'm going with a wheel boot or two (that covers lug nuts)... And I'll pick up some kind of hitch lock like tree killer.
    I haven't decided how I'm gonna secure the chains yet... Not sure if removable chains are allowed or not per dot, but looking through products still...not wanting to eat that 250$ pill yet.

    The puck is aluminum, but not the locking mechanism inside of the puck. Actually it has a 7 pin locking mechanism, that is very tough to pick. It would take quite a bit of time to try to grind through the puck and the hardened steel surrounding it. You wonít get a pry bar inside there to try to pry it off, either. That said, I did state it wasnít the cheapest option. It is easy to use, the new version(one beyond the one in the video) is even better executed, with slots in the rear of the lock, for a better interlock between the two parts.
    I donít lose sleep with this lock and nothing else.

    Iíve never actually seen anyone use a boot, in real life. Not even when parked in their driveway. Iím sure folks do, but in all my years of using trailers and hauling to the trail, Iíve just never seen one used.

    What did you think of the trailer I shared, above? It has your lift gate and other features you mentioned wanting, earlier in your thread. Price seemed quite decent for an asking price.

    I'm still waiting to hear back... I saw it in the trailer page. For that price the extra width is fine and probably it's including the fenders made to drive over.
    One pic makes hard to see.

    -- what do you do to seal your deck? really considering the diesel(gas???) and motor oil option. any truth to trans fluid?

    So finally picked up a trailer LOL...2 months later.

    2004 carson 16'x82' tandem axle with a brake. pipe top, 7k gwvr, and heavy duty gate...the gate is heavy as frak, but itll handle the YJ no problem. I think next week ill take the YJ to the dump to get it weighed.

    needs a couple things, but small stuff. one of those being sealing the deck... once it all dries out now.

    other ones I liked sold too fast and new ones were too spendy for not much to offer. Out of state didn't offer much help for what I was after except Lamar brand, but that was about another 700$
