And someone help me understand this.......the tires are E rated 17" tires.......and printed on is the weight rating.......but it says, for each tire "3025 single wheel/2835 dual wheel".

IF (???) that means that those tires would equate to 6,050 if on a SRW vehicle, and 11,340 if on DRW vehicle, then I guess I understand it. I'm assuming (?) the latter, meaning that the tires @ 4 each are rated higher than the RGAWR, meaning they should be fine.

Right? Wrong?

I think you have nailed it. Congrats

Color? My favorite two colors are Black and Chrome, but I have had a red car previously, still nice color. With the upgraded TV you could probably even pull one of the larger Casita TT! Enjoy! I hope to jump to a DRW 1T in a year but the fever is getting worse almost daily.

No worries. All the ram and ford guys are too busy reading truck service forums to even notice 😜😁

Just another thought, before you buy that B&W hitch, check out Reese Signature Series 18 or 24 k hitch ,I've got the 24k they look the same, but I've had both B&W now I have the Reese and love it, no tools needed no spare bolts, no b/s .
CHEVY RULES ........
