Re: Towing Capacity
I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Most trucks can tow a lot of weight these days. It is not the tow capacity you should think about as you should paying closer attention to the stopping power. Simply put, do not tow more than 50% of the GVW of the vehicle. If you do you will run the risk of not being able to stop with in a reasonable amount of time. That being said, if you have electric brakes on the trailer and an electric brake controller on the truck you can increase the towing capacity and stopping power. Too many people think that their truck can tow all you want it to and it can, but can it stop the load also?
