I just thought, we should have a sticky in this forum for what should be suggested in doing to improve our trucks to tow/haul. Whether that is steering, cooling, performance, safety or braking upgrades. Maybe put upgrade suggestions into categories by weight. Say someone wants to pull 10,000lbs. Well, what should be done to our trucks to safely pull something that heavy?Well, sounded like a good idea...

Why not just make a article database for RV / Towing and add write up to it. :smart:You can produce the information here and organize it. Then like I said add it to the article database then the world can share in the information. One pet peeve is I would like to get all the Dodge towing weights from 1989 to Current time as a article but I want it from the actual owners manuals not RV / tow sites. The numbers seen skewed. :think:

The list would need to be organized by generation of truck.

Sure thing... I would want the information from a owners manual and not some RV / trailer site.

Here is a bad example of what I mean. There is no listing of axle ratio, transmissions, etc. Then the weights seem to be off from what the owners manual shows.
