https://www.bigtextrailers.com/tilt-trailers Over the last 7+ years, we've been using this Big Tex tilt bed trailer for mainly ATVs and UTVs but now with the Jeep, it's all about the Jeep haha. This trailer is very well made, welds are good, and it's taken a lot of road abuse with minimum effects. The full sized tires and 9,990lb GVRW have served us well. It's nice having about 84" between the fenders and now with the big Jeep tires, it's time to design and weld up some over the tire driveable fenders I think. Sure, I can still fit but I'd have to air up before loading up, I don't think the tires of the Jeep would fit between the fenders when aired down. Maybe James Le Voy can think of something awesome for this trailer in that regard.

I've never had a Big Tex before this. The paint, metal, jack, chains, lighting are all holding up exceptionally well. It's a great trailer to consider. Going forward, I'd also like to consider a 140T over the tire bed... but then the Jeep will be really up there.

I tow this with my half ton 2016 GMC Sierra with the automatic 5.3L gas engine. It's a great vehicle and trailer combo that hasn't let me down yet. The newer half tons tow so much more than those of years past, it's pretty amazing what you can do with them and still get 20mpg unloaded.

Looks like a nice trailer. On mine I made my driver side fender removable. It came in handy when I moved my father in laws 1938 Dodge. I had to remove that fender to drive it on. Also, if you ever tow a car you will actually be able to open the door without it hitting the fender. It's at my parents house now but I can take some pics for you the next time I'm over there if it helps.
