My perris has a straight axle, flipped and 4" shackles.
Tows like a dream. And jeeps are rated poorly in the realm of tow vehicles.

Our JK Wrangler sits on 6" lift & 37" tires. Hitch is 30" from the ground. I used a 7" drop held tight by a "HITCH VICE" and the trailer rides on ADJUSTABLE "Flexiride" axle. Trailer & Jeep never had sway or unstable feel to it, and was able to get into real remote areas. A fellow Jeeper did what Bob Miller suggested and set up a small Coleman pop-up that exact way.

I'm a wuusss. Like being safe, can't help that. But when I changed the axle on my Scamp went for 45 degrees down on the Dexter and 15" tires.. ZERO regrets. Tows behind the Ford F-150 better than the old axle.... ever.. SWEET.
