@Roger Deephouse can I strongly suggest some safety chains on that rig, and perhaps shorten up the harness so the wire doesn't drag every time you hit a bump?
Other than that, it looks like a very capable combo.
- thanks for the comits ive used this tow setup for just about 10yr as I do food plots for folks have towed furthest couple hundred mile one way and push up to an over the 10grand loaded wt including trailer at times and my 07 never complained with Timbren overload rubbers. going with air bags this time around
It’s on the high side, agreed, but I generally travel without any liquids on board, and don’t use oversized tires or a 250 lb toolbox. On top of that, I believe Nissan is conservative with their specs.That's a bit too much for our trucks. TT's typically have a 12% tongue weight and as much as 15% if you travel with a full water tank. 12% of 8000lb is 960lbs my 2018 has a max tongue weight of 920lbs. And my payload per the door decal which shows tire pressures and payload capacity is only 1322lbs. If you have a 960lb TW and a 80lb WDH that only leaves you 280lbs for people and cargo. And that before you add bigger tires, lift kit, or heavy camper shell or tool box.
On second look that is not a big tow, are you 4WD? If yes, then my assessment still stands if not, check your gearing and you could be on the edge of over pulling.My TT is ~ 8000lbs loaded and I do just fine and have been on the scales to prove out all the weights. That Jayflight is just fine. Double check your hitch and you should have no issues.
