Reading this gives hubby more ammo to get me into a diesel p/u! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I had a GMC with the 454, and 4:10 rear axle, and got no better then 8 pulling our 5th wheel we had at the time. A diesel for a daily driver is OK. The Dodge that I have now turns sharper then the Ford I had, so when you drive them, look at that. My wife has driven mine, and she normally drive a PT Cruiser, and she didn't have any problems with it. So, go out and drive them, and once you pull the trailer with a diesel, you will see why most people love them.

I think I've been to Yakima. Southeast part of the state?

It's a bit more South central, just East of the Cascades. I-82 goes through here.

We're hanging on to the Tahoe for a while. Hubby decided that as long as we're only towing maybe three or 4 times a year, and not very far, no need for bigger. I'm going to check out some of the bigger rigs though, just in case....
