my tires are 35's made by Nitto and im sure you all are correct they were not designed for trailer pulling. going to do some more research to see if i can get into a new trailer possibly a 5th wheel set up. if that cant be done may go as far as trading my truck for a duelly. any way thanks again.

Here is the post that was deleted, minus the advertising links. I'm not the bad monster he thinks I am, nor am I little, but I don't tolerate spam and the fact that there were advertising links running through this led to a reported post from a member and action was taken.

I have to say if you're thinking that you can tow a 5th wheel with a tow vehicle with 6" lift and oversize tires you're are dreaming...unless you were to raise the 5er a foot higher. I know you like the look of your truck, but it that doesn't make it a tow vehicle!

Another question to ask as it's a toyhauler..how much weight are you putting in the garage. The weight added there takes away hitch weight...low hitch weight would make for evil handling.

X2, well put Dave.

Also, lifting the trailer to accomodate a lifted truck never made sense to me. Raising the center of gravity on a trailer or any RV to me is scarry. The worst is the guys with big heavy campers on lifted trucks, just makes me cringe when I see them and then move over as I don't want them falling on me when they around a corner to fast.

Might I also point out the rules of this forum which you may want to read through; an excerpt from them:

Quote:
Complaints about moderator decisions may not be made in posts; instead send a private message to a moderator. If a moderator deletes or edits one of your posts and you disagree with the action, contact the moderator concerned.
There is a good reason why this forum is NOT like the OTHER RV forum we all know and hate. It is because of the excellent moderation , administrators and members we have. Keep it in mind and be respectfull.

The black water holding tank thread would've been closed & several of us probably banned as a result.
