    hey how wide is it from outside to outside of the tires on a stock 71 jimmy, the tires are 31's that are on this one I need to go get. wondering what kind of trailer I can fit it on hoping I can squeeze it on a flatbed but worst case one of those uhaul car haulers

    I got a cheap rental trailer from my local Bobcat (skidsteer) dealer. It worked fine for my 72, and there was enough room for wider tires.

    You can't beat going Topless!

    LK, I haul my 3/4 ton little monster blazer all around the place. I have a 16' 2 axle "Big tex" car hauler that is 7' wide. I have to pull the 38" gumbos and put on the skinny pizza cutter tires (7" wide on stock 6.5"rims) and it is a tight squeeze. My trailer has 1' high angle-iron sides and front. The fromt hubs are the biggest problem, but with a good spotter, I'm left with about 2" on both sides of the hubs.

    I've towed this blazer from San Angelo TX to SLC, UT, and back and forth to Montana several times.

    best,

    Harry

    well FYI the HD version Auto Transport that U-Haul has is barely big enough, truthfully it didn't fit but I made it work. So try and have smaller than 31" tires and if you have wagon wheels (don't know if they are standard of if different offsets are available) they are really about 2" too wide was gonna measure the trailer but didnt' get that far today other than fit and having to squeeze that moster on there it rode good
