I say all depends on the mileage you have on your truck already and how much you like your truck. If you still below 20 000miles or so and you like it, well keep it and invest on delete. I don`t know how the lemon law really works down in USA but it also depends on how much you have invest to get the new 09. All problems on the 6.7 are emission crap related and I never had any issue since I`ve done my delete....Final point, it`s your decision, but if you don`t like your truck`s color it`s time to change it.....joke!

I have a 2007 megacab and pull a 42' horse trailer with living quarters. I bought a offset hitch and it allows me to almost turn 90 degrees. My trailer weighs about 18,000 loaded and no problems yet

Go to www.popuphitch.com to look at the hitch extenders they have. The one I have puts the trailer about 1' back from the gooseneck. Every trailer is different though, hopes this helps.

Don`t know how much weight you have ``on the pin`` but don`t forget every inches you add to your pinbox puts more weight on your truck and if you`re close to your payload already I would forget about it. 1 inches makes a big difference. I love the mega cab also but I prefer from far my long bed .

I am not sure how much weight I have on the pin, I did have to add airbags on my truck. We bought the mega for the room, but I don't have the room for an aux. tank etc. My next truck will for sure be a long bed.

I`m running airbags also not to have the truck nice and level but to make sure the rear suspension doesn`t ``bottom``. Every time you feel the rear kind of ``bottom`` the front end becomes very light and it is very dangerous specialy on wet roads. Dodge rear end is to soft ``factory``. I was saying to check the pin weight to JLAKE before thinking about using an extension or longer pinbox. Every inches you add makes a big difference on the pin weight and also on your trailer axles.

No its the other way, less weight on the truck. The truck is getting further from the weight (just like a cheater bar) so you get more leverage which = less weight on truck.
