Any ideas on if the is advisable? I saw the tow capacity was 3500 and we are under that by about 500 lbs.. But with the 6 speed tranny just wondering if this is a good idea - ok idea - or bad Idea.. thanks for the input
Your within the limits I see no reason why...Personally I think most manufactures really understate the capabilities. I would add an aux tranny cooler, and just keep the tranny in M5, with the gearing designed to try to get max mpg's, I think M5 would be better on the tranny.
