my 7x18 enclosed trailer came in and i was really surprised to see that
while dodge rates my '01.5 2500 cummins to pull nearly 13,000 pounds they
put a hitch on it rated for only 5000 pounds. this makes no sense to
me....is this a liability thing or is it _really_
only capable of pulling
5000 pounds on a standard (non-distributing) hitch?
also, please see http://utilityoffroad.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_IDC64 and
take a look at the adjustable hitch i bought. i was a bit reluctant because
its made of aluminum but i was assured by the shop owner that although he
sold more expensive hitches, that this was the strongest one he carried.
anybody have any experience with these?
my sticker from my '04.5 cummins says class IV hitch so im not concerned
about that one. i just dont know why they would put such a light receiver
on the '01.5.
