    How dumb I am. 5000lbs of feed and some pretty steep dirt roads leading to my ranch. 2007 4X2 V6. It pulled the hills like a champ but going down the hills was another story. Don't think I will be pulling that kind of weight again.

    Did you put it in Low gear on your way down the hills? Also, does the trailer not have brakes?

    With the upcoming lift kit with a All-Pro leaf pack I am thinking about snagging a Firestone RideRite kit for when I tow otherwise its going to be rough and saggy pulling the trailer.
