Default High Altitude Towing

Hello fellow Coloradoan,

I have towed my 31' jayco, 7200 LBS. loaded, with my hemi and 3.55's about 25000 miles now and it has no problem going up the hills. Monarch pass is easily pulled at the speed limit. We have been all over the country with it to include Alaska. Make sure you use a weight distribution hitch adjusted properly-check the reese website for proper installation. The truck will squat a few inches when hitched properly but that is needed for proper hitch weight. Be aware that if you tow like I do you will notice cupping in your tires but that is not a big concern unless you tow alot. I ended up installing the TLC leveling system to remedy that. As mentioned before always tow with tow/haul activated to save the tranny and gain better shift points.
