1200 pounds is nothing, you'll be okay.

Yeah, shouldn't be any problem. Just do a good check every time you stop; check hitch connection, chains, wiring, tires etc.

After Virginia there is no mountains or any steep grades on 95, just a simple straight flat shot. Not even a bridge till he hits Florida

Put a trans cooler on it cheap insurance won't hurt a thing and may help you in the long run.

Kyle, hey man .... Do you have anymore photos of your RC when you had the 245/74 Duratracs? If so, mind posting them? I ran across one photo in the RC thread and liked that set up. Thanks.
