The trailer will be pointed up all the time, meaning it will be pitting lots of weight on the rear axle and you will have problems including blowouts. That trailer is made for a tow vehicle 10” lower (or more) than yours.

You have a good vehicle to go offroad in, but it is not suitable to tow a fifth wheel.

my neighbor towed his 5th wheel with a lifted F250, rolled the block out of the leaf spring bolts or something, axle moved back into the fender well and caused a bunch of issues. after fixing he traded in for a non lifted f350. i wouldn't do it..

hook it up and roll hot!

You might consider adding a loud exhaust for more power!

All these people giving advice have left out the most valuable piece of advice. A good set of truck nuts hanging from the hitch and you should be ok!


Serious response, don't do it. Its not worth the gamble, power and braking are only part of the equation when its comes to stability in towing anything.
