I tow with a 1/2 ton '99 tahoe. it works. Really need to have trailer brakes though. When I was flat towing, if I had to make an emegency stop that was from a decent speed (guy running a red light) it would stop good but it pretty much wasted the rotors from the heat.
Rear end is a bit squishy in a tahoe too but that might not be the case in a dodge 1/2 ton pickup
