you will be fine with that set up
BEEMSANG said:I have a 2005 nissan Titan SE crew cab without a tow package. My college organization asked me if I could tow the school trailer to our conference. I am a little weary about it though. The GVWR for the trailer is 7,000lbs and a tongue weight around 400. The trailer will house a concrete canoe and steel bridge along with other competition events, since it is going to an civil engineering competition. My main towing job will be from Las Vegas to Southern California then back. Some of you know that this is a mountainous range. I am getting a Class 3 reciever hitch installed by Uhaul, and this is where the questions start:
Is a class 3 reciever sufficient? - No
Will i need a weight distribution hitch? - Yes
Many are saying I will be able to pull 10,000lbs with a tongue weight of 1,000lbs with a WD hitch? Is this correct? - You may be able to but you will exceed all the factory speced weights, which would be an insurance problem if something were to happen.
Will that stop and swaying and any fish tailing that may occur? - Depends on the hitch, if the equlizer brand one that is popular yes, just a standard WD hitch no it won't.
Will I need a transmission oil cooler? All titans have trans coolers, non-tow package trucks just don't have the guage.
Whats up with the gear ratios? You have 2.93, tow-package is 3.36
general advise will be helpful as well. - Be careful and I would suggest the factory Class IV hitch with the relays included and then get a good WD hitch to go with it. Also I would look at adding either an Airbag Helper Spring setup or the Roadmaster Active suspension to help with the weight as Non tow package SE's and XE's have the weakest leafs.
