LOL, I was thinking the same thing.

The problem isn't going to be the horsepower pulling it out, it's weight and traction. Quick story - I had the crap scared out of me when I was backing a large boat down a boat ramp. The weight of the boat pulled my lightweight Jeep down the wet ramp. Thank goodness I had already unhooked the transom straps, when the boat hit water it releived the weight and my Jeep didn't get pulled in further. Wet, moldy/mossy ramps can be a bitch depending on the angle. Careful, but to answer your question I think that hitch I posted above is going to be the least visible.

Chadwick did not have a boat attached, or he would have been able to find the Jeep

Please run up the warning flags and do the rest of us sane folks a favor warning us before you take your silly arse on the highway.

You need a Dodge RAM with a V8 not a lightweight offroad vehicle.

Maybe he is just going to pull it out of the water...

jwaked Come guys, thats why I explained in my original post that when I have to pull my boat is only out of the water. That means no more than 10 meters. No highway or anything, 10 meters at no more than 1 mile per hour. Right now I pull it with my wife´s Toyota 130 HP 4x4 so the Wrangler should have no problems.

s3nt3nc3d I hope that trailer's got a good mechanical brake system...aint no way I'd wanna pull a trailer heavier than my vehicle anywhere without trailer brakes, not even just down the road.

We used to have a 13,000 lb bulldozer that we pulled on a big 5500 lb trailer with a Chevy 3500 dump truck...trailer brakes shorted out on it and we had to pull it across town to our dealership to get it fixed. That was a hell of an adventure...we had to manually downshift the truck hundreds of yards ahead and coast in order to make sure we could stop at the stop signs in time. I had to make a quick stop just pulling it around between barns at work (long driveway)...hit the brakes from about 15 mph and nearly ended up skidding through the wall of the barn that was over 50 ft. away from where I intended to stop.

My buddy has a pretty nice ski boat in one of the barns and it has mechanical brakes on the trailer...they operate on a slide or something (a ball rolls forward when it senses the vehicle braking and it triggers the trailer brakes). This prevents the trailer from pushing the tow vehicle around...and prevents you from having to install an electric brake controller in every vehicle you intend to tow the trailer with.

Best looking Trailer Hitch?

I know this might sound strange but tried to search and nothing. I just bought a 2006 Wrangler, 6 speed 6 cyl 4.0. I would like to keep it as stock as possible including bumpers. For now I would like to add a trailer hitch, maybe with a 5000 lb or close to it pulling capacity. I do have to explain that it would mainly be for Jetskis but sometimes I have to take my boat out of the water, 6500 lbs. I do not have to pull it far, just out of the water and thats it. I would like to know whats the best looking or the one you can see the least trailer hitch. Thanks

Jay
