I for one totally agree with you. I don't care what kind of hype the manufactures of these pickups say. You shouldn't be pushing a 1/2 ton truck with 9,000 lbs behind you. I thought I could get away with with the 1/2 ton I had when we bought our windjammer. Yes it did pull it up some steep grades getting 3 mpg, and the winds were very scary. I was used to pulling a 7,000 lb loaded trailer, but the additional 2,000 lbs is way to much.
I bought the truck in my signature, so I could pull legally, and safely. No weight police here, but it was just scary. My new TV pulls this TT very nice. It stops well, and the crosswinds,and Semi's don't bother me. I'm very relaxed at the end of the day. I think the old saying holds true; there's no replacement for displacement. use the right tool for the job.
