Get a Blue Ox tow bar and flat tow just like you would behind an RV (Toad)

Goal is to not have the tires touching the road. Planing to modify it more and it doesn't seem to like highway speeds.

Well shoot, They are expensive but next would recommend a featherlight aluminum car hauler.

Say what and why wouldn't you be able to tow a Gladiator, just like all the wranglers, especially with the onset of the later JK's.
We RVeers have towed them all over the country, as we do ours and is probably the most popular toad on the planet.

Before wasting money on featherlight - check out sundowner trailers..Much better made

2-door is around 3,900 lbs. right? A tandem axle car trailer with brakes is around 2,200 lbs. So you'll be very close to max capacity once you climb in the Gladiator but as long as you don't have other people in the truck with you I think it'll stay within legal limits.
