towing a parachute.

The 4.3 should keep you around 2000 to 2100 rpm at 63 or 64 mph.

I really don't like driving at 70. 63-65 would be great.

IF you know you will usually be traveling below the speeds on your highway , stop at a truck stop and purchase a roll of Conspicuity tape.

This will help folks spot your tail.

FedEx trucks on I15 in Utah don't go 63mph. They pull 2 trailers and drive 75 plus. If that's against their policy then these drivers are not complying.

I think that feeling comes from what your TV is and what you're trailer weight is. I tow with a 3/4 ton and trailer is 7500lbs. Everybody's rig would be different. I haven't come close to sliding into a Simi when stopping in a hurry in stop and go traffic.

I would not concern myself with slowing drivers behind me. Stay to the right when possible. If not possible, be courteous when you're able to allow them to pass. I don't know when this was put together, but it appears speeds over 60/65 ( some states even lower ) are illegal in most states when towing a trailer.

I'm not an expert. But I play one on the internet.

I don't think I said that.

Whether I can stop faster than a tractor is irrelevant. What's relevant is that I know how long it takes me to stop, and that I make sure to have that distance available.
