My dad had a 99 1500 Dodge with the 360CI motor. Motor was fine, Tranny dropped after 51,000 miles. We sold it at 49,500 and truely didn't know it had a problem. All he ever towed was a 20 ft bassboat.
Later found out that Dodge had alot of problems with the trannies in those.

So this year I added air bags to the rear. Should solve the problem. You'll be fine as long as you stick with the original 10 ply tires. (Load Range E), and keep them pumped up to 80 psi, or whatever it says on the sidewall.

He is pulling a HUGE cat, with a lot more outboard weight than your straight-line COG V-bottom.

Really depends on distance,yea sure,if your running all over country to poker runs a dually would be nice but to run down to local lake would be a waste. As far as traction on a boat launch,my last dually spun the wheels easier than any single tire truck ive ever had,ended up putting a detroit locker in it. I would consider 4wd more important than dual wheels for pulling boats out of launch,Smitty

Thanks for the bids guys, and all the recomendations. I think I'm going to shop for a dually this week. There is going to be some great incentives after all the bad news this week on the new truck and suv all over the airwaves. The hit on the 2500 shouldn't be that bad though, they are still bringing 31 to 33.5 at the auctions. Some of you bidders may have to go just a little higher :D . Help a brutha out!!!! :drink:
