Suspension while towing

Hi there, this is my first post on this site , would like to say this is such a great site. Well I have a 2004 DC 4wd with the 3.4, was wondering I tow a boat that ways around 2700 lbs my rear sags a little any ideas on leveling the rear end when towing the boat? Was also wondering if it would've good to turn the over drive off while towing the boat?

Welcome to TW

Load leveling bags from firestone n such, might be what you want , perhaps an add a leaf. http://www.performance4trucks.com/To..._s=2&t_pt=9332 ...for example.

O/D off is likely the best idea, but I never had a gen1 to know what your transmission could do.

OD off if your truck is searching for gears...

To being up the rear while towing, get airbags. An Add-A-Leaf will level you while towing, and lift the rear when empty. Air bags can also be adjusted depending on how much weight you have behind you...
