the green box on the front is actually like a hydraulic lift table. it was really beefy by the looks of it. I wanted to get a better picture, but that guy was the driver and he was staring me down HAHA

Took this from the bar we were eating lunch at. 1/2 ton ford with a 3/4 on a dolly hooked to a bumper hitch. The ramps were dragging down the street.

No diesel and the trailer was a rental from outdoor rec here at base. I can't believe they let him take it!

Nope - the duals on the trailer want to sit level and they will unless you have some really strong springs in the tow vehicle - and a Cherokee doesn't.

I'm going to have to applaud the effort that must have been required to even load something like that. That is just amazing, it even looks like there is an engine in it.
