wouldn't it be nice if you could actually try some towing on the test drive of a new truck?
Hey Moe...you mentioned before that most of the toung weight is carried by the truck's rear axle....what about weight distribution? isn't that supposed to transfer the weight evenly to the front?
also, on your cat scale treatice....how do you go about testing your hitch setup, and how much its distributing? can you do that? I suppose it would require a bunch of hooking up/un-hooking, and so forth...but how else would you know if you've got your hitch set up properly?
I've seen several opinions on how the truck should be loaded...some say it should be "level"...others say it should drop a certain amount front/rear...some say it should drop equally...thing is, the truck isn't "level" when its empty. it sits ass-high. Also, totally different springs and stuff in the front as compared with the rear; an equal amount of weight placed on them is going to affect them differently.
