|three60fish||95 Ram 2500 V10. Tugs this stuff around fairly well, I can maintain 70 on grades in Ohio at least! This trip we had the kayaks on the roof, the VStrom in the bed, the Starcraft 25ft trailer and bicycles on the back of it for a week vacation in the camper. I get about 6mpg towing the trailer.|

Heres my current setup. 15 Ram 2500 4x4 shortbed crew with cummins and 6 speed manual. '16 Load max 20' low deck goose with rear hitch and wiring. 2013 Coleman 19' travel trailer. This setup gets right at 10 mpg @ 58 mph. 66' overall length.

For the past 8 years I've been pulling my camper and boat with an 06 f-250 6.0. I put 10k into there motor trying to make it reliable, and it still left me on the side of the road more times than I could count. It was always nerve racking wondering where it would leave me. I sold it to my diesel mechanic and bought a 2011 GMC 2500 Denali with the Duramax. Can't wait to pull with it next week.

Got some new shoes on mine. 2001 Dodge CTD with a built automatic, a couple go-fast goodies, steering improvements, and now some H2 wheels with 35" Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Running a 2.5" leveling kit up front, but I don't think it's needed to clear the tires.
I was actually a little concerned when I saw these tires in person because they're way more aggressive of a tread pattern than I anticipated, but I've been pleasantly surprised. They roll very smoothly and make no noise at all. We'll see how they do as they wear.
And no extra Cummins stickers, no stacks, and no flipped out mirrors. See, not ALL Dodge guys are like that.
The H2s fit really well! No rubbing whatsoever and they don't stick out very far, either.

Lots of good looking rigs. Here is an updated picture of my setup.

I have a 2002 F250 that has about 286k miles on it. I just rebuilt the trans myself about 6k miles ago. Very happy with the rebuild and the upgrades I chose. Pulls well. It has a 3" lift, TS performance 6 position chip, exhaust, and plenty of rust. Still needs a bunch of work but that's to be expected with something with such high miles.

|HMM||Kay86K5 that's a sweet looking truck! I'd love to have one myself, love that body style.|

It was kinda a give/take with all the decisions from drivetrain to lift/tire sizes....it should suit my needs just fine though
