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.
I have the Dakota w/ 4.7. I am planning on a 18' trailer. Just priced one out that was 1300# for $1900. Trailer + Jeep is about 5000 to 5500 #. Says it will tow 6800. I'm about 1k under. I'm only going to tow a few times a year for now. Hope it will work.
