    I’m also using a load distributing hitch and haven’t cranked my torsion bars up. After stopping here to grab a bite to eat I cranked up on more link on the distribution bars and that made it perfect, no bounce whatsoever. Truck and trailer were like one. The picture above is before cranking one more link up.

    Went and picked up this Toyota to drive a few times a week to give the Chevy a little break.

    Towing this with 4.88s sucked. I was either holding at 3k in 4th gear or lugging in 5th gear at 65mph

    First time towing, or in this case, hauling, anything with my green K1500. I was helping my brothers with a bunch of metal they were scrapping. I was impressed with how little the truck was sagging in the rear with ~2K trailer. Second picture of my youngest brother. He's not to happy we made him do some physical labor. 20190914_110644.jpg 20190914_120946_HDR.jpg

    @ameadows7 and @HotWheelsBurban, do you remember Stompers? Turn them on and they would go until they flipped over somehow. They were tough little bastards. I loved them.
    This generation of Yoda's always remind me of them.
