That's what I was thinking. It looks like the rear of the truck might be in a low spot, but then if you look at the wheel wells, that doesn't play out. Either way, that's a bad setup if it's going down the road like that.

He's been doing that for years and never had a problem which proves that all of you don't know what you are talking about. LOL. Needs more than a weight distribution hitch, he needs to reduce payload by at least half.

In the California/Arizona desert areas where there is a high concentration of Tow Haulers I noticed the "TV Nose High" condition frequently along the highways.

Part of that is the trend here. You lift the truck, but you lift the front more than the rear. Truck sets nose high with no load or trailer.Stupid if you ask me.

Some of them my have leveling kits. They set level with no load or trailer. I installed a leveling kit on my truck when I first bought it. I took it off after towing a small 2500 pound TT running nose high down the highway.

I see A LOT of that down here; big ol' duallies jacked way up in the air. What a waste, SMH. And even the SRWs all lifted with big tires and off-road suspension, towing trailers with the trucks nose pointed up at the stars 'cause the rear end squats down so low. Sometimes I wish people like that would just give ME their money, I would get more use out of it!

I don't get it, if you're going to have a heavily modded off-road vehicle, there are MUCH better choices than a 3/4 or 1T truck, especially duallies! Maybe it's just me...

It's a testosterone thing. I see a lot of these running around with big exhaust pipes sticking though the bed. They never haul anything, they never see any dirt other than what get's splashed on the quarter panels in a rain storm. My 1/2 ton does far more work in a month than a lot of these beasts will ever do.

A couple of years ago we camped at a CG in Cooperstown over the July 4th weekend and extended our stay so we not be leaving on a Sunday , as everyone else would. As most of the CG occupants exited I looked at their setups , from afar, and was appauled that close totwo thirds had me scratching my head. Most were nose up because of the lack of WDH systems. Now everytime I see a TT being towed I look at the set up.

Guilty here too. The ride home from the dealer and 500 miles out and back Memorial Day weekend.

Just enough traction on the front tires to generally point the rig where I wanted to go.

WDH added for July 4. Never again without it.
