Hi Keith:

I have a 2720 SD with the larger axle and 15" rims (plus two lift kits) and am very glad that I did it. But there are things to consider, like the overall height of the TM for storage and the "bounce factor."

I'm too sleepy from my most recent TM trip to discuss it right now, but this has been discussed at great lengths elsewhere on this forum. Check the "Bigger wheels? Heavier axles?" thread in the Towing Rigs section and the "5000 lb axel" thread in the General Discussion section.

I'll see if I can post links to the threads below:

These two threads should answer most of your questions.

Thanks Sue. I had seen the second thread, but not the first. Lots of good info in the first.

I assume you do a lot of Boondocking, do you have 20 or 40 gallons of fresh water?

I have the 20-gallon tank because the 40 is not an option in the SD models. We carry several 5-gallon jugs of water in the truck and transfer them to the TM tank using a bilge pump and hoses.

Default I'm another upgrade owner...

2619, no lift kit. (The axle/tire upgrade adds about 2" all by itself). I'm very happy with the results. I do lower tire pressure a bit when loaded light, as Goodyear recommends. That's how I keep it from "bouncing too hard". With the 40 gal water tank, plus 8 gallons of RO-filtered water from home, plus vast amounts of unnecessary stuff, we travel heavy.

I'd do it again, and do recommend it *IF* you have the garage height.
