Moving to Madison Wi. and towing everything I own.
OK on June 27th I will be driving 2000 miles from Portland Or. to Madison Wi.
I will be towing a uhaul trailer. Here are the specs on the trailer.
Capacity Empty weight: 1,800 lbs
Max load: 2,600 lbs
Maximum Gross Weight (trailer plus load): 4,400 lbs
Tow hitch required: Class 2 (3,500 lb. minimum weight-carrying rating).
Hitch ball: 1 7/8, 2 or 2 1/8, (3,500 lb. minimum)
Dimensions Inside: 11'7" x 6' x 5'5" (139" x 72" x 65") (LxWxH)
Interior Volume: up to 396 cubic feet
Door opening: 60" x 58" (WxH)
Automatic hydraulic surge brake
I have estimated the weight of all my posessions to be about 2750 lbs.
I was thinking of buying a leer canopy (about 200 lbs) to help stream line the truck and trailer, as well as be able to bring all my stuff.
What should I do to my truck before making this drive?
I have 29000 miles on it right now.
fx4 L2 Auto.
The rear axle still has the stock fluid.
The tranmission still has the stock fluid.
Brakes are still stock
Oil was changed at 24750 with royal purple and a K&N filter
The engine will have a K&N Fipk, 91 torque bama tune, and a flowmaster 50.
Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
