Thanks , I'm pulling it with a 2014 ram 1500 5.7, 6 spd tranny, 3:92 rear end, with Air Lift bags in the rear, Goodyear Lt E rated tires, rather have the Michelins but they're ok, hitch set up is a Reese Pro 4 way pivot 16000lb slider.

Nice trailer. I'd be checking the weights across a scale. You gotta be over the RAWR.

Nice rig but i would hit a cat scale and then the ram dealer if I were you. I had a 2013 ram Laramie and after the family on board (combined less than 450lbs) I had about 480lbs of payload left before going over. Good luck and be safe out there

You shouldn't have any problem carrying that rig, I think the total weight is 9,950 with a pretty low hitch weight. With your airlift bags I think you will fine.

Well honestly I knew it was going to be close to the limit, I'm confident that the truck being as new as it is, I believe I have the skill and ability to get from point A to point B safely, the braking of both vehicles doesn't seem affected by the weight at all, with the air bags there is little to no sag in the rear end, I can say I'm not in the position to change the truck right now, it was a no brainer to move up to the FW from TT we traded, because the circumstances were perfect.

That all being said, don't think for a moment that I am full of myself and have little or no regard for safety, I'm not looking to win any races to get to where we want to go, I've been driving for a great number of years and hope to have a lot more miles ahead of me.

I greatly appreciate the comments and concerns if I can consider them that, I look forward to peoples opinions and helpful tips along the way.
Pete
