    Actually the 4l60e is the same tranny that they used behind 4cyl and v8 only big difference is bell housing and converter. The guts are the same. Problem with lil trucks and big trailers is mass.
    I do like load distribution bars, when used correctly. Problem comes when a truck that weighs 3100lbs try's to stop a 6000lbs trailer. Not that brake fade isn't a serious issue. But the problem lies in when the trailer pushes a truck and unloads the rear axle. In this situation load distribution bars make it worse. Causing a loss of traction or even just stability. Very real reality is headlights touching tail lights.
    But all this depends on a proper setup and driving. The trailer should stop the truck, or at least do most of the stopping. Anyone heard of a Johnny bar?

    Problem with vehicles less than a 3/4 ton & the reason it's illegal to pull horse trailers here with them, is the axels. 1/2 tons & SUV, etc have different axels and when it fails while pulling, you are being picked up off the pavement with a spoon, you & your horses. Heavier trucks have different type axels that aren't not likely to fail & if they do, you just lose power and can brake to a stop. These options are not available on other vehicles, would be a special order.
