i have owned 4 trucks in 7 years and lifted everyone of them just to sell them becuase i lifted it. so i decided to get smart and i bought a 06 chevy diesel truck 2500 with the thought of never lifting again and having a motor to last forever. well i can't handle being so little so i have so questions. i want to be able to tow a 5th wheel 28-30 ft. toy hualer and not rub with tires of 37". is it possible? if so what lift and size and why? also what is your experience with it. i don't want to lift if it will wreak this truck i plan on keeping this truck for 10 years and want no steering problems. thsnks in advance -james

ya i pull a gooseneck and i had to get the neck lengthened 4" so that it sat almost level if you are going to pull a 5er i wouldn't go any taller then 35" if you don't plan on doing gears also but you should be able to get away with that and ya what ever lift you do i would put the cognito braces and outers on it the outers our my next steering upgrade
my buddies dad tows thier trailer that is a pull behind and it is 30' and pulls just fine and that is with out sway control so with sway control you should. If your set on buying a trailer i would go look for a trailer and find one you like then set the truck up that way you know the limits of the trailer and don't get into a point were you can't tow it
this is what i did with my trailer i thought i was going to need the neck extended on my goose so i looked at a friend of mines trailer and measured everything first and figured it out that way
