Towin' The Rig

Took the armada and the rig out out to Eminece, Mo for some canoeing last weekend. The truck pulled through all the hills and rain just fine.. to be honest i felt better pulling with my armada than my dads full size pickup but thats just my opinion

Plus i threw in a pic with the bike in it

That's a nice rig you've got there. Yes, our trucks tow very well. I've towed my trailer with my father-in-law's Dodge Ram pickup with the 5.7L Hemi, and the Armada does so much better!

Any idea how much your trailer weighs when loaded? What kind of hitch setup are you using?

Thanks! and uhh i guesstimate it would be a little over 5000 with loaded bikes, gas, gear, tools, etc... but its around 4000 with it being empty. and its just a class 3/4 hitch with a load leveling hitch setup
