As I said, unless you're talking the =latest= HT trucks, these are very marginal for towing with an HT. I've never scaled my rig =full=, but a ratio calc puts me > 1800 lbs on the pin and that's if there's no change in the ratio when I'm loaded. NBD, as I'm never going to have another HT truck and, if I get to replace my '02, it will be a 3500HD SRW, no matter =how= light my FW is. :-) Just so you know, I grew up on a farm and towed 20k+ trailers with my HT trucks, without brakes, and the hitch pin nearly dragging on the ground. Never went far or fast, but even then it was an adventure! :-)
