One word - CRAPPY! Can you say 6MPG! Let's see ... that's about HALF of what I got with the PS Diesel! But then again - it's about three times as much as I get with the Cigarette!!

That cracked rim could have been a disaster if it broke loose while running......especially if I was passing you. After Barstow, I had no problems and plenty of power. Weird. That really sucked though hanging around the truck stop......lots of different people passing through there.

Nort, I had a Weld Wheel crack on my F-250 psd. They actually told me it was common with the super duties because of the weight. They did warranty the rim though.

I was told it was better to use a one piece rim on the Super duties and Excursions. If the Centerline is a two piece rim I would conside this.

Hey Tank what are freinds for

Not sure if they do something to the old Power Strokes out there but my power stroke towed Biggus's 91 top gun with 750 hawk and 1/2 tank of fuel no problemo at 75 all the way home from LOTO even up the hills.

I still love it when people say that they do not know that their truck has so much power that they do not know that their 42 foot cig tiger is behind them...... YA RIGHT.

Jon

I remember way back when Jeffrey put up the thread about towing with the H2. I said then and I'll say it again, the H2 is awsome. It will do anything you need it to do.
And speaking of the Cajon pass, you guys are coming from the LA area right? How about taking the 10 to desert center, then up Rice road? Then you bypass all the Vegas traffic.
