Everyone thanks for the advise. As expected this TH kinda landed in between a 1/2 & 3/4 ton class TV
rideandslide, I'd be interested in hearing more about your driving experiences and any issues/likes/dislikes with the Grey Wolf 26RL. It is very similar in size/height but a bit heavier than the 26RR.
Bamaman, I was going to order the truck with either 4-corner air suspension on the 1500 or rear-air if the 2500 is selected. In any case it would have to have the tow packages with mirrors & integrated brake controller plus LS differential w/best tow gearing.
Keymastr, I had a chance to test drive both the 3/4T (6.4/no rear air on it) and the 1/2T with the 4-corner air (an Ecodiesel) and boy I tell you what that all-air to me had a cushier/softer ride....it was smooooth. Your right though, when ordering there was not that
much diff in price going up.
It's strange, we have a Brenderup horse trailer (European) at about 6000# GTWR and it is designed to have a 4% tongue weight
. Apparently they don't have many HD Ford/Chev/Ram trucks over there just Mercedes, Volvos and the like for TVs... Anyway it uses an all-mechanical self-adjusting surge brake system that is darn near perfect. It tows like its glued to the bumper in all respects, sway, bounce & braking using no WD hitch. I believe the axles are both cambered and castered and aligned for incredible stability using low tongue weight. Makes me wonder why US designs always call for a hefty 10-15%+ TW?
"Get a truck??" Kinda what we're doing here
