    Never took you for the type to play the victim. You literally said the answer was 1) Medium duty trucks 2) you weren’t going fast enough for it matter or 3) you had to be a baller to tow any kind of weight.

    And I absolutely would tow 14,000lbs with a new 150. Back in my day, I was pulling 20,000lb dies a few hundred miles at a time, with significantly less capable rigs. But I guess that’s bragging and will yield another meme.

    You just need sway control. @shawn and @BigSouth can give you the deets

    Would you suggest towing 2 Jeeps weighing approx 8500# to Harlan with truck in question?
    No. No you wouldn't.

    Gooseneck is better than 5er. But that's an argument for another day. :p

    I think we all agree a modern 1/2 ton is equal in almost every way to a 90s era 250 or 350.

    I think we all also agree either is capable of pulling 14k lbs down the road.

    I personally wouldnt pull 14k to harlan on a 30' tag with an f150...but i wouldnt talk shit to ya if you did.

    I will say this..I dont think I ever saw a trailer hauling 2 rigs into Crawfords . Hell i still remember calling my bil a pussy because he got to borrow his boss mans dually and trailer queened in the first time.

    I also remember a state trooper pulling me and grandpa over on the way to the sale barn in 91 or 92. He gave grandpa a ticket for too fast for conditions. He clocked him at 52 in a 55 and we had...I think 12 heiffers in this crazy borrowed trailer behind grandpas f100....300 i6 step side. I remember well the cop saying "ain't no damn sense trying to be Richard Petty while you hauling cows old timer"...

    So equipment has improved, our expectation have improved with it. Everything works fine until you go jump in a 90s truck and try to tow heavy at 70+mph...and even then it's fine until it aint.

    You should probably go back and re-read the thread, then.

    Try again. That's not even remotely what Phillip said.

    I’m just stuck at a family cookout I’d rather not be at, so I’m just here to poke the bear.

    I think of all the crap Joe Darlington pulled behind Isuzu Rodeos through the years.He thought he was kickin in high cotton when he got that new fangled sway thingy that went where the ball is and had the 2 arms going to the frame. He pulled shit across the eastern half of this country that out weighed that rodeo by thousands of pounds. A baller he was esp. if he thought he could flip it for more duckies

    To be fair, Joe could do a lot of things most would fail miserably trying...maybe not the best example.

    Ron/Ben found a way over the years to agree to disagree...Ben/Shawn still a battle royale...our arrogance gets in the way. I’d still buy him a beer though. Otherwise a fuller thread is still a sure fire 10+ page shit show.

    Or...you could be the pictures that they show you in CDL school and say "Don't do this!". It could go either way really.


    @77GreenMachine to be fair, GM didn't have TBI 350s in 1985. So it was even better....it was a Qjet 350 :D
