As many of you know, our 2008 Wrangler Sahara recently added an old M416 military trailer to her backside that we often use for events, trade shows, camping and more. The trailer has been given a mighty lift, some sweet 37" Nitto Mud Grapplers and a new paint job to match the Jeep. We weren't super impressed with the ball hitch this trailer came with and were soon on the hunt for something more efficient. That is when we found the Lock N Roll Articulating Hitch Kit. This kit is designed to give you 360 degrees of rotation and 3 axis of movement and is guaranteed not to pop out of place and eliminates the clunk and thunk that most pintle hitches are known to do. Well, we took this trailer and hitch to the streets, beaches, hills, rocks, bumps and more and we are so happy with what we accomplished!
This past weekend we went to a great rock crawling spot on our way home from an event. The trailer was packed full with tables, jacks, recovery gear and more, adding extra weight to the rear. We were able to crawl almost every obstacle there and could only hear the clunking and thunking if the trailer came down off an obstacle faster than we expected. The trailer was able to go off-camber while the jeep remained level and on all 4 tires without an issue. There were a few times we even forgot the trailer was behind us because of how silent the operation of the hitch was.
Unfortunately, when we took the Jeep and trailer out fully loaded with gear, it was at night so we weren't able to get any website worthy pics. Below are some of our pictures from torture testing the trailer on other occasions! Enjoy.
