Still learning need all the help thanks
There is NO SWAY when you use a Hensley and yes it is well worth the cost, but, you will not have the sway to tell you when to slow down so you will have to apply good throttle management to help stay alive.

Jeep stuff, we discuss on LOSTjeeps.com or the CRD Facebook Group. Here we discuss camping and related. These people don't give 2 poops about our little tractors.

You don't want to change the trailer tires to 12 ply truck tires.

They are ST (Special Trailer) tires for a reason. Take notice you have 2 axles, and you need to scrub 1 axle when making a turn...

Or, go ahead and let us know what tears apart first.

I am thinking the small short wheel base jeep does not help much.

I don't know much about bumper pull tts, but on any other trailers, if it sways too much increase the tongue weight.

Do a google search on st tires, the sidewalls say 65mph, but some maufactures state that for speeds between 66-75 you are to increase air pressure 10 psi higher than the sidewall rating, but no more than 10 psi. When I took delivery of my 5er, it was factory filled with nitrogen and 10 psi higher than the side wall rating. - Don't know why so many people haven't heard this.

Mine was the same way nitrogen and at 50 pounds . The guy that gave the run though on the trailer. Said to make sure they at 50. I'm new to all this only put at 4000 miles i=on the trailer so far. I believe the Hensley Cub Anti-Sway Trailer Hitch is the way to go for me.

So would everyone agree with LT tires for the trailer over the ST. I have a single axle trailer.
