i have def done the 30 mph reverse slam on the brakes more than once to unload full YJ tubs.  it takes 3-4 good hits.    remember to pull the bumper pull hitch head out first if equipped so

dump trailer makes #1200 a breeze to unload until you find out motors and trannies go into a different pile, had to roll it into a bobcat bucket. staff is always polite and helpful at the transfer station on portland, even escorted me once to the atm machine for large withdrawel, its the other "customers" that are the annoyance

$165 

Several other things too. No wheels but a decent bit of aluminum. Also $.50/ lb for wire with insulation. That shocked me - and got me $7.

Oh - and $23 for stainless in mostly TDI egr parts.
