Horseluvr, I don't know what you expect your friend to tell you.

If she's a true friend, she'll tell you the same things we've been saying to you; your truck is too small for that trailer.

Even empty, your trailer is too large and weighs too much for that truck. The idea of you pulling it loaded gives me the heebie-jeebies.

I pull my trailer loaded at 60 mph. and haven't had a problem, but my rig is designed to go together and there aren't any sway, stopping, or load issues.

I won't get into tire pressure for both vehicles, proper maintenance, and brake boxes, because they're irrelevant to this situation. The truck is too small for the trailer and nothing is going to change that.

raise or lower your ball height by 2 in on truck that will take your tamdon axles to a different pitch. older trailors that always being pulled level the axles get worn and loose in that spot ,so lift up or lower .it will tighten up your suspention when pulling. weight doesnt change pitch it changes height

I hope you realize this thread is over two months old, and the OP has either swapped out her rig or had a devastating wreck by now?

LOL, I guess it's time to close this one.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
