When is a dually needed?-0728011956.jpg


This is my set up, I used to tow it with a 1/2 ton Nissan Titan and was legal it was a nightmare and I could not go over 55 mph. It was my old trailer that was junk but when I bought the Dually it was night and day,trailer never swayed and I lost my brakes on the trailer and did not even know. Its even better with my new trailer.

Is it overkill for a 29 Formula....probably but you don't even know its there. And I do some far runs so I'm towing a lot.

I traded my 06 dually for a 300 Hemi so I'm out of the truck world at the moment...
I have a 11 Dodge. With basically everything H&S performance has to offer....Nothing crazy.

Nice truck, but unless my eye are playing tricks, looked like a 2 barrel carb on a 454 !

LOL, your eyes are not playing tricks, that indeed is a two barrel! All 650cfm!

Really works well on the combination!
