None of the enclosed trailers have them and neither do the open trailers. The car hauler does and I think the 6x12 ramp trailer does because the tongue weight is too much. Go to your local uhaul place, all the tongues will be sitting on the ground.

5x8 and smaller do not have brakes. Anything bigger is surge brakes.

Hmm I guess you're right and I've just never noticed.

And the surge brakes suck. They pulled my KL all over the place, I was sick to my stomach after a six hour drive with their largest trailer unloaded behind my car

I rent a uhaul about every 6-8 weeks or so. Basically anytime someone says they need help moving, I'll rent a trailer for them at my expense then while I can't load the trailer, I can tow it anywhere they want. I'm a giving guy, so it's my way of helping out. Anyone needs help I spend the 20-50 bucks to help someone move for a weekend. I love towing anyways. Miss my time as a truck driver. I've had uhauls with bad axles, bad lights that blew fuses in the jeep (at 12$ a piece and dealer only), I've had trailers that when I hit the brakes on the jeep the fill cap for the brakes popped off and spilled brake fluid everywhere. Luckily, the Cherokee is heavy enough that you COULD tow a their biggest trailer without brakes but you'd have to leave a lot of stopping distance.

I just pulled a 6x12 U-Haul about 900 miles with my Limited. ~2.5" lift from AD2 and larger tires. After reading comments from others, I thought I'd need a larger drop, but 3.5" turned out to be just about perfect.

It did not have a tongue jack.
