Maximum tow weight

We're looking at a new 5er that weighs in around 13k, and 42' long. My TV (in my sig) has no mods other than an LBZ mouthpiece to correct the overheating possibility. Currently I have zero issues towing our present 5er fully loaded I'm guessing a little over 11k. Just wondering if I'd be headed for trouble going to the bigger rig.

Nope. Another 2k for that truck is nothing.

Curious as to your axle ratio?

I think you will be just fine with that dually. I'm towing 12300 loaded weight with a SRW duramax and no issues. The dually will be more stable and should have enough payload for that trailer no problem

Good Lord you're a funny guy! I would push my dually before that happened!

Doesn't look like we're going to get it any way, dealer never got back to me so I guess they couldn't match our $ needs.
