It worked great! On a side note, i definitely need to regear my truck. Those 3.55s just arent right for pulling 5000lbs of additional weight. Dodge dealers techs were dumb and quoted me $4k just to change gears and wanted to argue with me and tell me my truck had a 10 bolt rear and wouldnt believe me it had a 12 bolt rear. Idiots. Local parts yard has a full axel with 3.92s for $400 and a front diff for $200. No brainer.

what type Dodge truck .. a diesel ?

if a diesel then you have either a Dana 70 or Dana 80 if 3/4 ton and Dana 80 if one ton
and IF it's a diesel that gear for that weight is a NON issue .. just turn up the power a bit. .... I pull a 16K fifth wheel with that gear and a G/N trailer that has seen 25K lbs. many times again no issue. My rig is at 570 rear wheel horse power but I turn off all the power adders and am just twin turbo'ed with big injectors at that point .. I am somewhere in the 400 hp range when I pull heavy.

so not to sound all pissey or anything [sorry if this comes across wrong].... but why a single axle ?
I personally hate a single axle for safety reasons alone ..
