McGrathRacing is on a distinguished road

I have a 97 Ram 1500 4x4 5.9 and a 18' tandem axle car trailer that i pull a '68 dart drag car that weighs 3215lbs w/o me in it. I have no problem pulling it at 60-65mph, but now do you have a trans cooler? If not then invest in one, I have mine set up in tandem with the radiator where the exit of the radiator goes to the inlet of the cooler mounted in front of the radiator. And NEVER tow with the overdrive on! That will be the quickest way to test your AAMCO warranty. Other than that try to put the car twards the rear of the trailer so you dont overload the suspension and you'll be good to go.
