I love these 1/2 ton debates
did I mention I now have 329814 miles on my 2002 chev 1/2 ton pulling XLR HyperLight 29 hfs with a Can-Am Spyder in back fully loaded fuel cell and water tanks - and I camp almost every other weekend for over a year now - zero sway been up to 80 plus - I'm i slow going up steep grade yes - I mean mountain pass type of hills - could I keep 65 going up steep grade yes but don't like to the revs being that high so slow it down to 55 at a nice 3300 rpm
I remember when I first put a 10,5 lance camper on the truck with stock tires - thought we where gonna die driving it home --huge sway - barely do 40 around a corner - this was with air bags installed -- switch to Michelin E ply tires and all was good again - sway gone - no more truck roll -- ----
The weak link in my truck has been the transmission but everything else has not been rebuilt and currently 329814 miles and climbing - headed to Santa Cruz on the 1st from Seattle
Unfortunately You won't know what you truck can handle till you tow it - - I seen plenty of 3/4 ton trucks that have the same issue as 1/2 tons and rated less than some of the new 1/2 tons
All 1/2 tons are not created equal!
WDH Setup is critical
Bring on the 1ton critics lol
