Its my second Dodge had a 2000 3/4 ton before this one. I liked it so much I bought another one and like this one even better...I have always been a GM guy.. Lots of Olds a few 442s as well. Even had 5 Vettes in the past..What did u think a new one was going to cost??? They dont give em away..

I know they are expensive. I have bought five brand new trucks in the recent past.
I cannot see spending 30k on something that I am only going to use all of its power, etc... for nothing more than weekends and vacations.
I did talk to a salesman that I dealt with for my Vibe. He says we are talking right around 24k for what I want, with my GM discount too.

Hi Guys

Well since you guys are on the truck topic I guess I'm not off topic. I'm going to be borrowing my brothers 07 3500 long wheelbase van. Being a 1 ton all I have are #1000 pound WD bars. Should I tow without WD bars or what should I do. Thanks Robert

Robert,
Use the bars. The bars actually give you a rigid contact point between the van and the trailer.
I had a 1977 Argosy Minuet with a hitch weight of 200 pounds. I still used the bars as it offset weight and gave me a rigid connection between the trailer and the van.
Load up the bars until the trailer and the van are level. They will do better if they are level to each other.

Lou's Right always use them. They even put some of the load on the front end and that helps alot in weight distribution..

I like to keep mine a little bit low at the hitch even with bars pulled up tight..Never go higher then level because that trailer will get lots of sway..

donation for raffle

Just want to chime in that we'll be bringing along three spiffy license plate holders for the raffle.

Look forward to meeting everyone tomorrow.
