In the last Consumer Reports survey of owners, the Dodge Ram finished dead last in reliability. Dead last. Jeep is finally not on the bottom thanks to Dodge. More issues than any other brand of...

That's because it is NOT a gauge. It is really an idiot light. The "gauge" is "managed".

I'm pulling a 5er with Ecoboost and Max Tow; payload 1,820 and dry pin weight of 1,070. Wet pin is 1,350 and wet trailer is 8,400. It pulls it fine; plenty of power. It's fine for local pulls of a...

You are describing an accident waiting to happen in my opinion. This will be a grossly overloaded truck; with a lift to boot. Might be OK if you camp in the driveway and nowhere else.

Yikes! Huge price jump to the Platinum. Thanks for the info though. Sure looks nice but the price tag is too much for me.

Damn Chrome

Is there any option to get rid of the chrome grill or bumpers on a Super Duty. I'd love at least color coordinated bumpers. To my eyes, all that chrome borders on hideous. I was hoping the FX4...

Beware of encouragement to exceed your limits.

Crosswinds may be a real challenge. Your truck is going to be squirmy. You will be over that payload with that trailer.

The more the ball tilts backwards (toward the trailer), the more pressure the bars will be able to put on the hitch. But be careful, tilt that ball too much and you might not get enough bar...

The connection between these two statements escapes me. But I can only assume:

* You are overloaded and don't like hearing...

195 is normal when not towing.

When I tow my 8,500 trailer, I see around 205. 215 on a climb. Towed up to the Eisenhower Tunnel and never exceeded 215; but it was cold. I would want to stay...

Not sure whether you already have the kayak? If not, look at inflatables. Sevylor has some nice tandems.

You can easily pull either one with virtually any F150.

Kinda opposite ends of the spectrum there!! :)

That is definitely too tight. The truck will be real squirrely like that.

You do not need any auxiliary load management. That trailer should tow easily with a stock truck.

Also, your trailer...

that is a big trailer. You have 2 issues; trailer length and tongue weight. Check the payload capacity of your truck. It's on a yellow sticker on the driver door jam. My guess is that you will...

Honestly, I think it is a waste of time and money. Total GCVW is never the limiting factor; it is payload. The point being, if you monitor your payload properly, you will never approach your GCVW. ...

You might run into an issue with the 500 lb limit on the tongue if you don't have a WDH.
