Rent a U-Haul trailer, and take it back with you. You may even accidentally lose it somewhere in the mountains.

THAT----------WOULD BE TERIBLE !!!
NAW, I LIKE IT JUST SUCKS PULLING ANYTHING BUT I HATE THE WAY IT BRAKES UNDER A LOAD. ALWAYS AFRAID OF A PANIC STOP -AND NOT BEING ABLE TOO.

Mine gets about 16 on the hwy . 14.7 to15.3 in town. towing the hustler 11 and the race car trailer was 9.98mpg about 14500lbs. it has 10000. miles on it now.Trying to find a good looking grill ,cant find any tail lites for the hd .thinking about painting the front plastic and mirros white.still don't like the 03 front end but did not have a choice at the time.4x4 and dually prob hurts but got to have it.it has a pretty smooth ride compared the the other dually.cant go wrong with the 0 interest rite now. and they have been selling real close to invoice ,usally about 14 % mark up on invoice,the make there hold back 3% of invoice . look up kelly blue book on price its pretty close . I paid 640.oo above invoice because they had to drive 500 miles to get it in Nov.there was not very many out there then


the alternator and 4x4 switch just went out on it. the rep said on some that sets a code on the 4x4s they dont have a fix for them yet ,he said it gets stuck in 4x4 drive .hope this doesn't happen

Tunnelvision,

Have a 2003 4X4 SRW Crew Cab with the Allison 6 Spd MANUAL. 22 MPG highway, 20 MPG around town, 17 MPG pulling a 35 Fountain. I thought about a 3500 dually but I'm glad I went with the 2500. Hell of a lot better ride than my last truck - Ford F250 PSD. Enjoy.

tunnelvision: Thanks. It's a 6" lift, 35x12.50x17" tires.
All Fabtech components, done by Extreme 4x4 in Pheonix. He does great work, and accomodated my schedule by getting all of it done in 5 days! I get the most comments on the steps that electrically fold down once the doors are opened, and then retract when closed! Very cool.

Here's what I tow at 14 mpg (75mph):

Bill, Congrats on the new truck! That ZF Six Speed Manual is likened to the one in the Corvette. I like that tranny a lot. Look forward to seeing you at SML!
