Uograding from a Windstar to a Dakota
we've been towing our 2400 dry weight so i figure 3000 lb with a windstar. no problems, easy tow if you take it easy
we're considering a dodge dakota, v6, 2wd auto, should be an easier tow
my concern is the hitch on the truck, its a class three by valley industries of california, it just bolts to the existing tubular crossmember behind the bumper, nothing back to the frame, where as a reese uses a mounting system that goes right back to the frame of the truck on both sides
should i be concerned and just replace the hitch with the reese?
