    I own a 2006 chevy Suburban, 327 motor. We have purchased a small toy hauler with a total weight of 4000 # loaded. Looking for tips on tire selection and other towing tips that this forum can provide.

    I have been building drivshafts for over thirty years incase someone has a problem with a driveshaft.
