looking rather spendy.
I think it might take at least 2k to get the truck up to where I would feel comfortable towing. Needs tires for starters. Damm load range is 114, which I think is below or right at c range, not sure though.

New tires are at least $800

Radiator is 2-300
air bags 300
brake controller 200
trans cooler 65
weight distribution hitch $200?

Sheesh, but it is good to take a step back and look at all this though.

I might run with it and upgrade as necessary, (exluding the trans cooler which I think is manditory) But I think my 35psi max tires will hate me, so they will be the first thing I look for.

Guy called me back about the trailer and said it says 4887 lbs on the trailer, so not too shabby.
