Just went from a 2002 Avalanche 2500 to a 2015 Ram 2500. This time went with 4.10 rear, although the Ava never had any problems pulling or stopping 10,000lbs.

The left rear trailer tires are in a big dip in the road. When it is on level ground the frame is within 1" of being level.
The way the metal is cut angling up to the front always makes them look nose-high as well. When setting mine(not a Lacrosse, but metal angles up in front), I would have sworn it was nose up but measuring the frame height confirms it isn't.

What truck do you pull your lacrosse with?

What about Anderson Hensley's are very Pricey seem to run $2500-$3300

I was towing a 6600# Shasta with nearly a 1000# Tongue and it was a pain with my Camco Ez-Lift 1000/10000

Since switching to the 2015 Roo23IKsS which has a tongue 587# using the same WDH re-Adjusted I can load the Bed with wood and chairs, grills, etc and still be way with in limits and still only drive 60-65 with no sway even with two 18-Wheelers whizzing by on either side.

I can tow a Max of 9800# with the 3.55 gears and EB pulls it with no issues.

I am thinking of an F350 Diesel Crew 6 and 3/4 bed Lariat but can't justify the cost of Diesel and MPG as an everyday driver so sticking with the F150 and will stay no more than 75% of Max Tow weight. I figure Truck is 6800 with Gas/GF and I plus Dog, Trailer is at 6600 so I have safety and wiggle room and feel safe at 60 in the right lane

Pulled our 2014 327RES with a 2010 Tundra Crewmax 5.7L for the last two summers. In about three weeks I will hook up to my new '15 GMC 3500, crew, SRW, Duramax/Alison. Looking forward to the new rig.

I have a 2013 318BHS. I pull it with both a 2010 Ram 1500 and a 2014 Ford Expedition EL with Max tow package. Both do just fine.

I pull my 37' Lacrosse with and Ford F350, 6.7 Diesel. Had an F150 that I use to pull a 28' Outback with, but I know once I had the Lacosse and truck loaded for travel, I would be overweight.

I never regretted by decision to upgrade to F350. took a 8000 mile trip this spring to the west coast. Through deserts and mountains it pulled great.
