Colorado Towing thread

I have read thought the towing thread and those flatlander's are crazy. As you all know we do not live on the same planet as them and there is no way I can tow 5000lbs with my 11 taco... What are some of you towing in the mountains? My general rule of thumb is cut the towing rating in half and thats what you can tow in the mountain on a regular basis. My last truck was rated at 10k and I struggled towing 6k in the mountains. I am thinking in Colorado the taco should tow 3k max without killing it. thoughts? post up some pics of what your towing.

I am in the market for a camper.

What's your truck?

Not that I could ever afford it .. but I sure would like one of these: http://www.adventuretrailers.com/teardrop.html. But for now, my "trailer" is a shell and a Bedrug in the back.
