I know a lot have people have done it and haven't heard of any problems. Shouldn't be a problem.

Update:

2008 30’ Slide. 2005 Suburban 2500 4x4. Hensley Arrow 1400/14000. P3 controller…. As good as it gets. Great weight distribution, smooth ride. Left a half-full open bottle of Desani water on kitchen counter… was right where I left it 200 miles later- I kid you not.

Same trailer/hitch/controller but with: 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 (single drive wheels) 4x2 Diesel. Pounded the snot out of a/s. 15 mile test drive- all drawers out of cabinets, doors open… the fire extinguisher actually came off the wall, and the pin came out of the can… it was like ten rounds with Sonny Liston

Guess you could say..Ram Tough is sometimes too much.

But actually that bodes the same for all Brands. A tough truck

suspension can really beat-up the trailer.

SMOOOOOTH...Thats why we like our Burbs right?

i guess i'm not surprised... the 3500 rides like a cement truck...

between that 3500 rammit, E-350 van, diesel excursion, and 1500 rammit... my money's on our 8L 'burbs...

most definitely... i had the 'burb configuration at the second hole... moved to third hole (up) for the 3500, and let the jacks out 1" past the 3rd cut line... so i was really backing off the WD... i havent hit the scales with it yet... but the attitude/rake on the truck was almost perfectly level (its got a pretty good rake to it unloaded)

well i'm sure you've considered this but another variable is the truck tire pressures.


phil in miami tows a long 70s unit with a 1 ton dodge 2x4 with drw...

he is using a air hitch,

http://www.airforums.com/forums/491570-post16.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/500960-post53.html

but no can do with the arrow.

he also looked in to the mor-ryde rear shackle rubber suspension mod...

apparently they don't make a product specifically for mopar, but the ford unit is adaptable...
