    Man I tell you what, I can not be more pleased with the double leaf springs and sway bar setup on my truck. Truck is totally amazing. Smooth ride, haul anything, tow anything up to 10k, perfect.

    Pulled 8700 pounds of tandem axel flat bed trailer (with 5200# axels) and equipment like it was nothing. The rear end squatted about 1.5 inches and that was it. Im guessing that my tongue weight was right around 800#s.

    Will post up some pics of that trailer loaded up in the next couple of days.

    The picks below are of my enclosed trailer (3500# axels). Level is perfect!

    I picked up a 10,000# 12" drop hitch with up and down adjustment of the hitch to exactly where you need it to be so that your trailer is perfectly level.

    I threw on a set of good 10 ply trailer tires (trailer came with cheap 6 ply) so I should be good to go.

    Did it have a short yellow bus? Lol

    I'm just messing with you man. It's axel. Or not.....

    Truck looks great. Suspension matters and can make all the difference in towing performance.

    I'll be interested in hearing your report when you reach AK.
