I'm a convert!

Between reading the "weight police" postings and weighing my
Tundra, i decided to trade to a 250/350 and wound up with Ford deisel.

Towed the trailer 400 miles this last week and am now a believer.

The truck smoothed out the road and all but eliminated any chucking.
I don't know if it was the weight, the suspension or the wheel base, (it's a long bed), probably all three, but it was a better towing experience.
It also flattened the road, making the hills much easier to climb.
All in all, I just felt i was in a lot better control.

The gas motor guys will be along shortly to discover their ranks just shrank by 1 more. Enjoy the power and ease of towing.

Good for you! It all makes a difference. I found that just going to LT tires instead of P-metrics reduced chucking. It's a lot more comfortable towing at 50% of your rated capacity than at 110%!!! Enjoy your new truck.
