The weak link are may things.... Suspension was not designed for towing, entire clutch system, Tires / wheels, not to mention if you did cause an accident and they noticed 8k #'s on your truck, they would have a hay-day.

Very good point Patrick,I do not think Insurance would not cover any of it because these trucks are not recommended for towing.
