I wouldn't worry about it too much. Only thing is pay attn if there is a bumpy road and get it out of OD otherwise some awful shaking in the truck from being pushed by the trailer.


I'm a wh0re for free stuff

bad idea...
9k lbs is like half of what your rated to pull so you won't even know its back there except for the slight tuggin you will feel when you hit a bump in the road.
