Re: What are you towing with?

Picked up an 04 Ford F350 Lariat with 174k miles on it this past November. Has the 6.0 and was deleted at 40k miles by the previous owner. So far I've added a weight distribution hitch (came with a gooseneck hitch installed already), Recon projector headlights, SCT X4 Tuner with IDP Tow/Street/Extreme Street tunes, 5" MBRP exhaust (no cat/muffler), XDP coolant filter, Switched over to Rotella T6 and Shell ELC coolant, GlowShift Boost, Fuel Pressure, and EGT gauges, and blue spring mod.





This is my first diesel and first pick up. Tows like a dream. I just set the cruise at 65mph and let it do its thing.

I plan on adding a leveling kit and maybe step up to 33. This summer I will stud it, o-ring the heads, and add an external oil cooler.

Re: What are you towing with?

I wish I could afford to buy a pickup just for towing & let it sit until I need it. I definitely would not daily it cuz I'm not too crazy about trucks, but it'd be nice to have my own when I need it.

It doesn’t have to be a truck or a diesel. I tow with a Suburban that is also my wife’s DD.

Yeah, I'm with you. I've towed my XJ to Rauch from Jersey with my 5.9L Durango which I no longer have. I do prefer an SUV but lord I am so tired of hearing that an SUV isn't the "ideal" tow pig.

“Ideal” is in the eye of the beholder and situational. There are times the Sub is ideal for me and times a truck would be ideal.
