Something to think about is handling the ramps when youíre older,

For sure, already there, why I have a love-hate relationship with my roto-molded coolers.

I have a 2 axle flatbed. I only have to get the ramps out for moving the lawnmower. I drive the tractor and atv on and off it. It is not a tilt. A jeep should be able to get up without ramps.

Itís a PITA to load a full size truck on a 16/4 tilt deck.  Iíve had to do it a few times on rescue missions.  If I did it more often Iíd probably get good at it.  Have to lay something on the ground that catches the back of the trailer when the second is getting close to keep the bed from tilting.  Put a nice dent in an aluminum drive shaft by not doing this.  The trailer was bought for an excavator though and it works perfectly for that.  Depends on what weight and length youíre loading Iíd say

I have a tilt and love it. Is the jeep a wheeler? Or just transport? I like my tilt for dead vehicle recovery but you have to take some though on what dead vehicles you will use it for. I have a 16ft full deck tilt I put a receiver on the front of to attach a winch. I cannot recover full sized vehicles with it dead and really long cars like my wagon. Dead vehicle recovery on ramps sucks. :twocents:
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.
