whats that trailer weigh? steel i assume?
i thought diesel club cab long beds were heavier than that i guess.
2wd is lighter and less complicated for sure.

how well does it tow with that stake truck on the back of the trailer?
tail wag the dog much?

i have a super cab ford and yes the back seat is just for storage mostly.
people dont fit, and hate it mostly.
That dual trailer was actually a freinds. I don't recall the specs of it, but we were legal. With that load it towed perfectly. 55-60 mph no problem. I was actually very surprised. The back seat room on the Dodge is pretty good. My kids tell me they like it better than my wifes Durango or my Cherokee. I'm sure once they are bigger I'll have to look at a crew cab again. I wouldn't mind swapping a Cummins into a superduty.
