some of the F-150's have a lower rating than the Dakota.
Last time I looked 9500 was more than 7000. My concern isnt with good condition straight down the road pulling power. I was more concerned that if something came up the trailer/jeep combo would control the ass end of the Dakota.
Like was mentioned earlier this shouldnt be white knuckle driving time. I want my family and others on the road around me to be safe.
I think the Dakota is out of the picture. If we go Dodge it will be a Ram, but I think we are leaning towwards the Ford.
Thanks for the input guys.
