I flat towed for a while before buying a trailer. The TJ is a gread toad. Flat towing is even covered in the owners manual. Towed miles do not register on the odometer. Less weight for the tow rig to pull. You can't back up with a towed vehicle behind you. Supplimental brake and tow bar systems are expensive, and you may be able to find a good used trailer for a little more.

The decision to buy a trailer was easy for me. I started playing on harder trails and always worried about getting home if I break something.
Where we camp, and at home, there is plenty of room for it. It comes in very handy for all sorts of stuff besides hauling the Jeep.
Saves the wear and tear on the Jeep, and expensive MT tires.

Mine is a PJ 18' dovetail I found used for a great price. I've had it for 4 years and it's been great. Be prepared for friends and colleagues wanting to borrow it! Lol.
