New (to me) Tow Vehicle

Well, it didn't take long to figure out that the old Chevy just wasn't going to cut it towing a 10,000+ trailer. I think I solved that problem...


Photo problems [Mod Edit]....

Boy, that truck looks like it loves U-turns. It's way too clean. Get some bugs on it.

How do you like the steps? I need something on mine. I've been looking at the AMP steps but they are $$$$$!

Yeah, I just like the room that the QC offers and I need the long bed for hauling my motorcycle and ramp with the tailgate closed. Actually, it turns way better than my old Chevy C3500 with same cab and bed configuration. The steps are nice...I assume original as I think they are Ford parts. I'm what you would call "full grown" and they support me just fine.

Did a 100 mile or so test run with the trailer Sunday and the 6.4 PSD didn't even breathe hard even with some nasty winds. I think I'm going to like it.

Now, if it would just warm up here in Indiana. Forecast low for Saturday is 19F.
