This is a Lariat, GAS,

I'm sure a good part of the gain for the new body style comes from the weight saved with by using aluminum body panels.

You can pull this or that. My question is... can you STOP this or that in an emergency braking situation?

Nothing more harrowing than stabbing the pedal because some little old lady J walks in front of you and your mega cruiser shoves you right over her with you watching helplessly through the windshield and the brake pedal is indenting the firewall...or...

Some clown in front of you panic stops in his or her Prius and you eat them because you cannot stop in time... Guess what, it's your fault, assured clear distance...

Brake components are always larger on any truck with a higher GCWR than a lesser truck.

One, don't tailgate, two, anticipate the unexpected always and three, buy a truck with the higher payload rating.... just say'in.

Just as important is make sure your trailer brakes are working. No truck can panic stop a trailer without the trailer having brakes working correctly.

If you can't feel the trailer pull a little when you touch the tv brake pedal, you need to do some adjusting either on the trailer brakes or the controller, or both.
