    What do you use to tow your toy?

    Me:
    2001 Chevy Tahoe
    It pulls the Jeep with no problem and couples as a great daily driver too!

    Have three
    1968 kaiser Jeep truck( was my dads)

    1979 J-10 Jeep truck

    1973 Chevy Bus

    The bus has a 350 that's comming out. runs great, low miles, but not enough grunt to pull the CJ and trailor at decent speeds. Bought a BB 454 yesterday. gonna rebuild and see how it does

    Welcome to the board. Nice to see a fellow Morgantonian.

    James and Chip,

    Nice to see some Jeep p/u as tow rigs! Damn James, your tow rig is cooler than my trail rig (74 J10)! No tow rig here just ugly old pick-up trucks that barely run!

    2001.5 Dodge 2500 Cummins 4x4 5 speed quad cab long bed. Small intake and exhaust upgrades. missing most of its noise inhibiters. I seriously love my truck. It has been used harder than 99% of the trucks you see on the road, and is still in great shape, inside and out. 200,600 miles and its oil consumption is up to maybe 1/4 to 1/2 a quart between 8 thousand mile changes. Capable of pulling anything i have ever hooked to it at super-legal speeds.

    I don't really know why but, it will out run or out pull any stock or lightly modded 89-02 cummins i have ever run up against, and my company has had around 11 of these year trucks, and none of them can handle my truck from a 50mph roll up to whenever you want to let off.

    Not trying to brag, but i just get giddy when i talk about my truck.

    PS i just realized that today is the four year aniversery when i got it. 1 more year to go.

    2002 Ford Excursion Limited, 4x4, 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel, auto tranny, Ramsey brake controller. Trailer is 18' dovetail, dual axle, contruction grade not sure of weight rating but the 8000lb Massey Ferguson sits just fine on it.

    We need to rewire the trailer altogether to use the brake controller and I want to add some straps for tieing down BUG instead of my current chain setup.
