got my 2008 F450 today!
Well I must say the power is quite amazing. If you have read my post's about my tricked out 2003 Ram 3500 Cummins HO pulling my 26,000 pounds horse trailer then you have heard my delima... The Ram has done a great job pulling this horse trailer but it works to do it and it does it good. This F450 4.88 Axel made me look in the rear view mirror to see if it was there on my 5th wheel. Not joking!! Though the horse trailer right now is probably around 23,000 pounds at the time of towing yesterday, I am sure the extra 3 horses aint gonna make much of a difference. So right off the power is amazing
What I am shocked... and pretty pissed off about is how much the bed is saging as I lower the trailer onto the 5th wheel. My Ram stays perfectly level this sags real low so now I am going to need to take it to a Spring Shop to see what I can do. Being the horse trailer is a reverse load and has air ride the wheels are very close to to the rear of the trailer which causes a much higher toungue weight to lenght ratio then most Standard Horse trailers with large living quarters.
So any tips would be a appreciated.. I
