    Trucks

    Soo I am looking at finally getting my truck I know what I want and I know what I can afford haha. I would looove a 2001 dodge cummins that's my dream truck however they are pricey trucks and I can't afford one at this time ( hopefully near future haha) soo I've found a few 2500 gas dodges in my price range but mainly 1500s yes I'm stuck on a dodge although if I find something else I'd consider it haha.

    My question is would a bigger v8 say 5.7 pull a 2 horse trailer safely? I plan on getting trailer brakes and anything else it might need to pull safer. 1 thing at a time I won't have my horse or trailer for a while so just preparing

    Yes, our Ram 1500 with 5.7 Hemi and the tow package will pull a 2 horse with no problem.

    Most full size trucks equipped with a tow package should be able to pull a standard two-horse bumper pull in normal conditions. I haul mine with a 4.6L V8 Tundra double cab. I feel it when I tow up to the state park for trail riding (it's on the top of a mountain, so a pretty steep drive), but barely notice it's there when I haul the hour to lessons twice monthly (mostly highway).

    If you live in a very mountainous area or might be traveling on less-than-ideal roads, want to tow a gooseneck, or other special situations, then a bigger truck is probably warranted.

    I'm going from flat california to flat arizona so mountains aren't a huge problem there are some here and there depending where we haul ( I go with my trainer now a lot) but they aren't super steep generally.
