^ I think you should be fine, your trailer is similar in weight and at 26 feet is just shorter than mine. It'll be plenty of trailer for you 2.

Sorry guys, not to start an argument, but I've heard nothing tangible to suggest a 3.92 is more fuel efficient than a 3.55. I'm sure if you were to contact Dodge N.A. they'd set you straight on fuel...

Cracked sidewalls on Goodyears - 1.5 years old and 36000 kms (or 22000 miles)

Anyone have this? It's very slight cracking along the wheel rim most of the way around, on all four tires.

It's the 275/60/20's. My pressures are always right, but it's parked outside all the...

That's lousier than I would have expected with a 3.92, and certainly worse than my 3.55.

I tow as much as 6000 pounds with my 3.55 and I have zero complaints. A 3.92 may be better for towing, but...

Don't think we can explain it away as "they're all the same nowadays", my wife's 2011 128i or my 2005 RX8 shows a much stronger metal gauge.
