I personally don't like towing with IFS anything, but thats just preference.
And just to keep things in perspective, I can visualize the difference between a Dana 35/44 axle and a Dana 60/70.
A half-ton pick up is for towing a couple sleds and transporting the family dog or occassional fat chick.
Yeah you're right and so is Mclovin, he needs at least an F450.

Give me a break.
