A dualie quandry

Recommended Posts

So, I just found out today that my beloved 5500 and 7500 GMCs were replaced with 2 3500 dodge rams with the ISB cummins in them. I'm really confused how trucks that had GCVWRs of 26,000 and 36,000 lbs can be towed now by 3500 pickup.... and a Dodge too! Why not get a GM or a Ford truck... hummm anybody know anything about the big dodge, i read that they can only tow up to 19500 so thats why im worried, i think our big trailer is over 19500.

The GM 3500's I believe if properly equipped are rated for ~22000 above the rear axle with a GN or 5er hitch. Only 12000 at the class V hitch bumper pull... I would guess that the Dodge would have to be close to compete.

Ok, big trucks weigh a lot! LOL! The trailers were very light in comparasion to what they were towing and the new trucks can handle them just fine. I'm looking foward to driving th ISB Cummins..... I think thats the best light duty diesel engine out on the market right now.
