Yeah, it is quite a difference.
When I worked landscaping, our 'small' trucks were 1 ton dodges, dually, CTDs, dumping flatbeds.
All our trucks, from 3/4 ton and up, we used pintle hooks for everything, so thats a bumper pull.
On the 1 tons, I often towed up to a 28k trailer, didn't feel unsafe at all. But a good size equipment trailer with a bobcat was a bit of a load for the 3/4 tons that we had(foremen trucks).
Hmm, I never used an equalizing hitch when I was hauling a 35k lb trailer with the DT466... :tonka: Should I have?
My new dodge 3/4 ton(96 V10) doesn't have the camper special package that my 2000 3/4 ton did, and it sways a bit more, so I think I'll get an equalizing hitch for this one..
