We were thinking of going the djm 3/4 drop on our '08, but we were worried about it weakening the frame alot. We dont tow but it might happen once in awhile.

One of the guys from Xr-underground has that drop and tows a boat or camper quite often. But I think he also has helper bags he uses while towing.

The notch reinforces the frame pretty well from what I can tell on mine.

Make sure you box the frame and reinforce the sides.

You'll be good.
