Maybe the legislation will force many of us into larger tow vehicles than we would like to drive. Some folks don't like to exceed ratings due to legal liability issues and would be stuck with larger more expensive vehicles. In the past the ratings could be used as a guide, and the aftermarket parts business supplied us with a cornucopia of parts to beef up suspension, brakes
, cooling, power, tires
, etc. We would modify vehicles to make them work for our purposes. Now with all the lawyers instigating litigation for every infraction of law or lapse in perfect judgment, we have to be paranoid of how we do things. Many are afraid to modify, and will have to go with the vehicles the legislators say are worthy.
It will be interesting to see how this evolves, and what choices we will be left with.
