Whats the trailer weight? Looks like I need to get a flat bed trailer to tow my ATV's and motorcycles on my trips to Florida

Wow sure looks like a lot of squat for an empty trailer.
Yea, and mind you at 10%, that's only 430 lbs on the ball, so any more weight is really going to have the headlights pointing towards the sky.. This truck was not built to tow trailers.

Absolutely amazing!

Who cares about all of us trying to calculate TRX available payload so we can tow campers behind it... love how you solved the problem by having the camper tow the TRX.

If I could, I would buy the Renegade Super C with bunks for the kids and do exactly what you're doing...


Insanely jealous!

I'm hoping a heavy duty weight distribution hitch along with being properly leveled, it shouldn't sag more than a couple of inches.

I know the TFL guys posted videos of the TRX towing a 5k lbs trailer and didn't have near the squat that we are seeing in this thread's photo.

My raptor gets basically same squat with more or less any trailer hooked to it. Guessing same phenomen here with the long travel shocks
