    How much have you towed w/ your diesels (6.2 preferably)? Just curious about how much weight you can hook on. I've towed about 300 kg (som steel to the junkie) as max and it did that as it was a feather bouncing behind. Please answer.

    I know my cousin on one occasion towed a Wolverine skidder on a triple axle trailer /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gifwith my 6.2 before i bought the truck from him. He aslo towed a huge diesel fuel trailer for his dozer and those aren't light either. Not too sure how much weight that comes up to but it has to be a lot. I'm sure that contributed to the tranny failing less than a year after I bought the truck /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Had a '88 crew cab with n/a 6.2 diesel. Largest load I pulled was a 35' Jayco 5th wheel, longest trip 600+ miles. Many shorter in-state trips.

    I towed my dad's ford (99 f-150) and 2 honda rubicon 4-wheelers with my 6.2 for about 400 miles. I guess that to be about 6500 lbs.???
