What a wild ride home... made it safe and sound!!!
I left the Mesquite Explore USA in rush hour traffic down LBJ and took I20 West, passed by Town East Ford where I bought my dually last year, it's a small world.
The weather guessers were right, their rain had passed, but I hit a hard crosswind about Abilene. From the flags it looked like 30 gusting 50 mph. West Texas is lovely in March!!!
The 3895 tracked well and the 6.7 had to downshifted for hills and headwinds to hold 60/65 mph. I won't say she handled it with ease, that was the drive up @ 2000 rpm/79 mph dead.
I'm going to need to find the sweet spots of PSI all the way around. With my 12,500 lb Torque I ran 65 lbs in the TV, no airbags with about 1-2 inches of sag, no Trail Air and it rode smooth.
To get ready for the heavy weight I added the Air Lift Loadlifter 5000 airbags with bump stops. Stopped by Discount Tire on the way and took the TV tires up to the max 80 PSI, put 50 PSI in the airbags and with a full fresh tank @ PDI the Trail Air took 85 PSI to the arrows. (dumped the fresh at the first rest stop)
The Metroplex freeways ring, bump/bump/bump/bump, even in a passenger car. So needless to say I did have a little chucking, which smoothed out some on the highway.
Any recommendations to adjust the PSI in my tires, bags or hitch???
