If I bought a 1 ton SRW Dodge Mega cab that is of the same model year (2008) this would increase the GCVW by 1,000 LBS. The trucks are all most identical except for one leaf helper spring on each side of the axle spring pack. Same drive train and tires/wheels for both models of truck. So if the 1 ton SRW truck can pull this than my 3/4 ton can also.
By the way I do not carry fluids in any holding tanks never had and never will this to me is unnecessary mass that depletes the fuel mileage when pulling. This is my third 5er since we got back into camping.
Thanks for the concern but I am not a newbie for pulling.
