    Ram does too. My 2500 has a class V, theyíre even nice enough to give you a reducer if you donít wanna buy a new hitch! Lol how could you pass up a deal like that?!?
    Honestly I think yíall are worrying for nothing. I donít know where these ratings come from, itís just odd to me. My parents towed a 30í bumper pull steel horse trailer all over the country with me and my sister to rodeos with a 1.5Ē shank, 2Ē 5000# ball ON THE BUMPER of a 1980 GMC 1 ton. Those old trucks donít have near the capability of all this new technology. If that welded chunk of 2Ē square tube with 4-6 bolts directly into the frame canít handle a 7000# boat on wheels, Iíd be more than surprised.
    Iím not saying itís right or wrong, but from an engineering stand point, it doesnít add up that the hitches canít handle it.

    As an Engineer, I can assure you that the hitch rating was established by SAE specification J684.

    There is safety factor, but, typically I would not want to rely upon that factor towing a mortgage or my family.

    It's a liability issue. Can it handle it? Sure - until it doesn't. Then who pays for the damage?

    Iím sure itís like our pressure treating equipment at work. Itís rated for 15,000 psi working pressure but the manufacturer tests it to 22500 psi. If we are using it and it sees over 15,750 psi it is removed from service and destroyed. Can it take 15,750 psi? Sure, but if it fails the liability is too great.

    That being said, I exceed the receiver capacity on the Expedition. Rated for 6,000 lbs and the Mojo clocks in at 6,900

    I donít mean to preach, simply sharing the facts.

    What everyone does with facts are up to them.

    Itís kinda like seatbelts......fact is they save lives, yet some people still refuse to wear them......
