Factory overloads needed for towing/hauling heavy loads?

Postby Firstgenfanatic » Sun Sep 28, 2008 8:54 pm

Just wanted to know how important it is to have the factory overloads. I do not have them and plan to haul/tow. I guess not all 1st gens got them from the factory? Any opinions..........? Thanks

Depends on your weight and if you bumper tow or goosneck. I goosneck pull 26000lbs gross with a w350 and no overloads. It handles fine and doesn't squat at all.
