Default Towing with my '08

Hey guys im currently looking for a new job in Michigan so i can get the hell out of Virginia. Still on the job hunt but i figured i would get everything sorted out before its moving time.

When its time to move I was looking to rent a 6 x 12 uhual trailer and on the website it says they are going to want the weight rating for the hitch on my truck. I looked at my build sheet and its a class 4 but i cant find any information online about the weights online.

If anyone can shed some light on this for me I would greatly appreciate it.

The hitch reciever rating for the truck should be on the hitch itself. They'll also want to know the hitch rating and the ball rating. All stamped on the piece itself. As for your truck, the manual may say what the maxium tow capacity is.

Exactly what he said. The weights will be stamped on the hitch and ball. But I have learned that uhals computer system is wrong when it comes to saying wether or not you can tow the weight or not. But you should be fine with the size trailer your getting. As long as your not hauling rocks. lol
