I would loan it to anyone that wants to go to the trouble, but it's only a 2000# gauge on it so you would be limited to about 1500#1700# pin weight unless you buy a 5000# gauge.

You had better start shopping for a new rig, you've got less than 10k to go with that one.

Same with the snide/rude- I'd love to know where your pin weight comes out to as well as the yellow sticker on your truck. And believe me- no commentary from me over the numbers.
