bikendan, It is not an suv. My Tahoe is, but I wouldn't even try pulling our TT with it. The Tahoe pulls our Tri-toon...lol

You missed my sarcasm.

The whole "I don't go far" myth is just insane. You're either overweight or you're not. Trucks don't snap in two. It's a cumulative, insidious effect of too much loading. Go to YouTube and watch a crane go ... or the various trucks usually in India that are overloaded.

Want to justify bad behavior? Fine, maybe we all do it on some things. But don't expect to advertise the behavior or justification and have too many people follow along.

Cheers.

67L48... Look. I'm not trying to advertise anything. I was only replying to the thread. I'm sorry if you were offended. That was not my intent.

I'm not offended.

Advertise = make publicly known. Replying to the thread is trying to advertise your behavior.

What you're doing when towing is not good. Trying to justify it is worse.

We sold this Outback trailer but still have the '07 Avalanche, now with 170,000 miles.

2007 Avalanches were half-ton only. However, we ordered ours with the optional 2500 series drivetrain: 6.0L Vortec, 4L60E heavy duty transmission, 4.10 rear-end, oil & transmission coolers, etc. Never had a problem towing the Outback (about 5,500 lbs on the road).

Wow I didn't know that was an option.

7878 dry weight..
36 ft. 11 inches.. not that that has anything to do with the price of tea in China.

4.10 axle the maximum trailer weight is listed as 8000-lbs.

I still got wiggle room.. PS... they don't build them to break at THEIR rated capacity..

I even tow with aftermarket alloys.. just to live life on the edge!

I'm not. Many people here have a problem with people who grossly overload their trucks and go cruising down the road like the Clampetts. At the very least, please let us know when and where you're towing so that we can make sure not to be on the road with dangerous folks like yourself.

Wait... why are you trolling this thread anyway? Your profile pic is a 3500? Oh...wait...I get it. It's one of those syndrome things? Right?

Trolling means to distract and create discord by posting off-topic messages (trying to get people wound up for the sake of winding them up). I'm doing none of those things. I'm right on topic here and posting data-driven conclusions about your irresponsible towing habits. Just because you don't like the message doesn't make it trolling.

I don't drive a 3500 and what I drive is irrelevant to the question of your poor decisions on towing safety.

It's not a syndrome thing. It's a data thing. It's a math and numbers thing. It's a safety thing.

Cheers.
