I'll start with mine;
Hitch: Reese Towpower 3 Ball w hook.
1/8-3000lbs, 2-6000lbs, 2 5/16-10000lbs, Hook-10000lbs

Gears: 4:56 (Formerly 3:92)

Haven't towed more than 7500lbs but always good to be prepared.

Redtruck has a hidden Class III hitch with an extension to help protect the roll pan.



But I don't intend to tow using Red anymore, waay too easy to bend up the roll pan. She'll be the towed and not the tower. Just put plates on her new car hauler this morning...

True, plus I think it supports the rear frame rails since the factory cross member is removed for the roll pan install. Might help if Red got rear ended.
