OK to TOW 07 3500 Dodge 4X4 or to heavy

I am setting up my Dodge 4X4 truck to flat tow,it weighs about 7000lbs and I will be towing with a 10,000 lbs hitch and a brackmaster to the truck. My coach is 07 Endeavor 400hp this should be ok right. The reason that we want to set up the truck is so we can put our 2-KTM motorcycles in the back of the truck for dualsport run on our trips. I am not a full timer This should be ok right

Well it depends if you let your budy catch a ride when he brakes down or looses his jeep because he has no jeeep brakes.

It is Good

bare1foot...
We tow this....



It is a 2006 Chevy 4WD VortecMax CrewCab. It is probably close to the same weight as your truck. We have a 2007 Diplomat SFT with the same engine -the Dip is the same as an Endeavor but under the Monaco brand instead of the HR brand.

We have ours set up with a Blue Ox Aventa LX All-Terrain tow bar which is a 10K lb rated hitch. We also have the M&G Braking System set up on the truck.

You will notice the truck is there only when you are going up steep grades...
