So, I have been towing stuff around probable longer then you have been alive. My current truck has ~ 70,000 miles towing something. My Rig had over a million and previous trucks had hundreds of thousands of miles. So now that we have my experience out of the way. OK, sure, you can have the perfect setup and still make a bone headed move and kill your truck, or family. But we are talking extreme cases. Anyway.The problem is too many people don't know what they are talking about. I didn't understand the importance of all the numbers until joining a group on FB for my travel trailer brand. Telling them they won't have any issues, is like saying I drive 100mph and haven't had a accident, you'll be fine. It's only a matter of time towing over your trucks GVWR or RAWR or payload will have consequences. I towed 2000mi round trip about 400-500lb over payload and 300lb over my RAWR, I didn't have any issues at all. But after weighting the set-up and discovering this issue we aren't comfortable, I'll be getting a 3/4 ton when we can afford to. Knowing what I know now I'd shop for TT's with a GVWR of 6500lb or even less would be smarter using a non XD-Titan.
Now slyfur1, you seem so **** sure that you are right not even knowing how the rig is setup or even about the truck. Face it, you are trying to be a know it all behind your keyboard.
Hey Miles777, this is just 2 guys that have not looked at your rig or weights. If you want to come over I will take a real look, but to me, everything you are showing at this point looks normal from my vantage point. I also have the tools and equipment to make adjustments if needed. I have done this for others a few times and I am always willing to help for a safe setup. For now, if you are not sure and want help take some pictures and I will give my thoughts.
