    Sorry, wasn't trying to be/sound insensitive or promote being unsafe. Only pointing out that while the hill is steep, it ain't the worst I've ever towed up/down...
    And agree that Phillip did the right thing given the circumstances. :beer:

    Since my truck is all manual, engaging the front axle/locking the hubs would've required stopping, which was only gonna happen if the ass end tore loose or I met someone coming down the hill... I saw it coming and maintained as much speed as possible until it leveled out.

    So, appears that only Chevy's have issues on that hill? :flipoff2:

    Too many variables in the Isuzu dudes failure pinpoint the true cause... I'm positive it couldn't have been running a "surpass the Allison's torque rating by 25% tune", attempting to crawl the hill, or the trans never being serviced? ;)

    Nobody in our group of 12 rigs mentioned anything about the hill (issues or otherwise), but ALL bitched about the 2.75+ miles of continuous "pothole" on the Army Corps road :lol:

    I bet I could back up that hill with my F150 pulling 2 rigs. In 2wd and 4 flat tires. AND with the AC on full blast.

    PS. Never even been to this place y'all are talking about, I'm just stirring the pot lol.

    Been storing this 67 at my father's property in VA (to keep my number of visible "unregistered vehicles" to a minimum). Cleared out enough that she gets to come back home.
    The 5.9l gasser did pretty good, first time with this combo, back roads at 50mph was harder than the highway at 75mph.

    Is that a full tilt deck trailer? Trying to make my mind up on tilt deck vs ramps.

    Yes full hydraulic 24' tilt. Its the only way to go, my only complaint about this trailer is I wish it was a deckover.

    I noticed at the get together that the ram mount looks like it hangs way low, has that ever caused an issue?

    The original owner added that, not really sure why he mounted it the way he did. It has dragged a couple times but never stopped me, I will be making the trailer a deckover soonish and I will mount the cylinder the correct way.
