Ok, I don't understand where this "1-1/2 to 2 times as much as the load" comes from.

18 wheelers routinely tow loads that are 3 to 4 times the weight of the truck.

RV trailers often weigh 2 to 3 times as much as the truck, and there isn't even a professional driver at the wheel.

True BUT the trucks and trailers you mention have brakes.

This is reason why I asked is because I've read on other blogs about people towing 5 ton military trucks behind a 1 1/2 ton truck using a special military tow bar. Sounds like some have done it but it wasn't recommended. Here I would be towing a 6500 pound grain truck with a 5000 pound chevy truck. Seems to me if I kept the speed very slow and took it super easy on corners and leading up to stop signs I would be ok. problem is here in western ND, there are no haulers to be found because they are all making 6 figures out in the oil patch. Other option is to swap the motor out where it sits but I'm not excited to preform a motor swap on a cab over in the middle of a field. So far thanks for everyones input.
