I made it back safely. I did notice something pulling this trip. When I loaded the excavator up leaving the house, I had most of the weight on the trailer (night, cooler). The truck would spin on loose dirt fairly easy and I could tell on the road that it was a little light in the tongue. But it pulled well.

Coming back home today I loaded it about a foot further forward (hot, day time, wanted to give the tires a break). The truck was not squatting hard but seemed to pull a lot harder... Maybe it was just me being tired and driving for 2 1/2 hours. Maybe it was up hill all the way home...
Has anyone else noticed the heavier you load the tongue, that the truck seems to load up more with the same trailer load? Seems like I had to drop a gear more frequently. Also i was driving 50-55 going and 60-65 coming home. Could have also had a little to do with it. The 5.3L was barking loud through its 3" glass pack.

More tongue weight = less wheel slip.
