Mine is welded. There is a piece of tube welded in there so it doesn't have anything to do with the bumper. I've been doing this since I bought it in 2011 with no problems. Like I said, its fairly rare to see a 5er without a trailer behind it in this neck of the woods...

SD state law is 75' but I don't think there's a lot of enforcement. Theres's a fair number of guys pulling longer than that.

I believe each state is different on the lengths. How fast do you drive then towing a double rig? I'm thinking 55 mph on the flats, less in areas with terrain. Most of our trips will be 100-150 miles each way. So going faster is not that big of a deal for me.

Pedal to the metal. If I lose my boat trailer I want to be way ahead of the mess!

Just kidding. 😀

I have been looking at putting one on mine as well, especially after my dad just had his 5th done at a local MN shop. Here the law is 70ft and no driving in the 7 county metro during rush hours Mon to Fri.

Nice rig OnyxSky. Was that welded on or bolted on?

I usually run around 60. Not that I can't go faster but I almost never have to pass people and it helps my milage.

60 sounds pretty good. With just the fiver I have to use the cruise control, otherwise I have a tendency to creep up to 70+. A second year on the Towmax ST tires and I'll be switching to LT.
