I was definitely past 7500, but I try not to load the tongue down. Not the first one I've ripped off either

You didn't upgrade to a class v or better after the 1st one failed? Or was it on a different truck?

I upgraded tk a Curt class v a few years back after seeing one fail at the worst possible moment. Totalled the truck, trailer, and offroad rig he was towing. I heard later that the insurance company denied the claim because he was loaded past the receivers rating.


Are you sure about that I swear they were rated for at least 10,000 pounds?

I thought so too until I actually read the tag. Still can't believe the hitch is so light weight. I pulled around 12-13000 a few times locally before I knew better. Now that I have a class v, never more than 8000. Go figure.

Put a new FPR in. Ahh there is the nice quiet idle. Glad it was the easy one on the second pump. Also swapped my heater hose from the upper rad hose back to the water pump bypass so I have heat in the morning. Itís a freezing 55-60* out here

And momma is gone for the week for a school trip so I took over the garage.



And a little daddy daughter time mixed in

Haven't been able to hurt this hitch yet. It goes 6" farther into the frame than stock, and ties into my lift gate for additional strength.

My dad had a trailer rip off his Dodge stock hitch and go through a fence. He keeps putting stock hitches back on for some reason. I learned the lesson for him, and run this custom hitch.
