To comment along with my brother Coppers out there; here in Missouri we have CMV Troopers that handle the overweight etc., problems. We (City) can call them any time we need them. As far as jacking with the TT's I have never seen them pull any over for weight. Unsafe hook ups or something else yes. The biggest problem you guys pulling heavy have is your tire weight restrictions. You better make sure your tires are rated to haul what your pulling. If you have a blow out and cause an accident someone else will own you. Those civil litigation attorneys will eat you up!

I prefer to have the luxury of putting weight on rather than taking it off to be in compliance with my tires.

Even if I was not partial to Flagstaff, that is definitely one fantastic combination! Also sounds like you are very conscientious when reading the entire thread. You know your comfort zone, you are aware of the limitations and tow accordingly.

Just how I remember seeing it Sunday on the Cape. Great looking setup.

The truck drops 1" when hooked to fiver. I have Timbrens. I drive sane. You spend your money, I'll spend mine, what I have left, and no, there's not enough for a ton pickup. I've seen 3/4 ton truck squat a lot more.

Edit; I forgot to add this.

My point exactly. I had a half ton Yukon Denali my first attempt at this site( I was kidding with u) and was told I couldn't do it. I towed fully loaded with no issue thru Yellowstone, big horn mountains. But wanted a 5er going forward so decided to upgrade to 3/4 ton diesel. Is there a difference, absolutely it is a night and day difference one finger vs two solid hands. But if you are diligence and understand you could tow heavy with a lot of diligence. It's a different ride and require a lot of fore thought which many people don't have because they are more concerned with themselves than those around them...

It's not x2 it's dependent on experience and the situation surrounding it. I am out on this convo.
