It will be interesting to see what the difference is - and it will depend on options chosen, of course. But when we bought our 2013 5.0, Tammy and I figured that the weight differential between it and our 2008 5.0 would be about 300lbs based on the new, larger fridge and solar and extra insulation etc etc. So that would put the 5.0TA at close to 800lbs more than the 2008 5.0. And that's the overall weight, not necessarily the pin weight.

Having said that, if Reace says it will work with a Frontier, my guess is it will work!

Alf, did they say if the one in the photo is raised for full size trucks or the lower version for mid size?
