    I dont have any pictures, but I bumper pull 10k to 14k lbs regularly with my 1995 3500, pulls just fine, with any weight over about 7k-8k lbs be sure to have trailer brakes, stopping with just truck brakes with much more than that will get pretty dangerous if you have to stop quickly.

    Is that so? You've come to right place. Read the sticky about the plenum gasket if you've never heard of it or don't know much about it. Any questions, simply do a search and if you don't find it, just ask. Many knowledgeable people here who can help you out.

    Not a fifth wheel, but I figured gooseneck was good enough.

    I've done a few upgrades, but she definitely didn't like it. Trailer is 40foot dually triaxle, each axle is rated at 15,000 lbs with brakes on all axles. There are 30 5'x5.5' rolls of hay. Definitely don't recommend doing this. Dana 80 axle is actually rated for 11,000 lbs. Truck has severe duty brakes all the way around. More pulling & towing upgrades are coming such as air springs & ats transmission.

    holy crap that's a lot of weight, what do you think the total weight was of the load?

    How did the truck take it, how did it hold speed? What speed were you doing?

    I've towed a max of 22k lbs in my 2014 2500 Cummins. 30' Big tex dual axle dually trailer. You can feel the weight tugging you pretty good going 65mph

    I tow an enclosed 40' trailer that weighs in at 15,500#. My 02 2500 CTD doesn't mind at all, averages 15mpg, and gets regular love via AMSOIL. ;)
