Your biggest issue is going to be tires and rims with your truck, I would think. I would look at switching the tire and rims to a higher load capacity rating. This is what I have done for my 2500 Ram. When I pull my camper a Cedar Creek 34RL, in the summer I change out my rim and tires. I am using Mickey Thompson Sidebiter II Wheels and Nitto Dura Grappler tires LT285/70R/17E 126S, these will support 3750 LBS at 80PSI each. I run them at 70 PSI so they will support a load of 3415 LBS each, which is more than enough to support my trailer load.

Okay, it just dawned on me..... I'm used to looking at trucks with the 6.7 diesel which is significantly heavier. With the 6.2 you gain payload. At 2900 lbs of payload, you should be okay if you don't load bags of cement in the back while Post us a picture of the new rig...we all love pictures.

I think the tires on the truck now are rated at 3450lbs per wheel. I got a deal I can't pass up (I know they all say that), but we were considerably upside down and the wife loves this one. Do plan on installing Firestone air bags. Will post some pics when I get them. Thanks for all the comments.

You will be close on pin weight. I can not say how important it is that you install the air bags. I pull our 33IK with a 2008 F250 with airbags. The airbags really steady the ride and gives the truck extra stability. Some here will say that you can pull it with anything but stopping is something else. I have had several occasions when I have had to come down hard on the brakes, providing the brake controller is working properly and the truck brakes are in good condition it has not ever been an issue.
