first, does it have the factory tow package?
second, what rear end ratio is it?
third, which cab and bed length does it have?
fourth, what's the max tongue weight with a WDH for your truck? the 551lbs. "dry" tongue weight will actually be a lot more when loaded for camping.

the 2304 will probably weigh around 4000lbs., including the options, battery and propane.
so, that'll giver a 1000lbs. to work with, meaning the cargo in the trailer versus everything in the truck other than the standard 150lb. driver.

that tongue weight will be an issue, because of the murphy bed's weight.

I have a 2304 and tow with a chevy 4.3L V-6 I added a Transmission cooler and an additional leaf spring in the rear. Works good. It will do until I get enough cash for a new truck! Happy camping.
