Loveland Pass or Eisenhower? Big difference there. Loveland Pass is very windy and steep, Eisenhower is relatively straight, but still very steep.

Lou - was yours a gasser or an oilburner?

We went from Denver to Lake McConaughy in Nebraska last month. Pretty much flats with some rolling hills. I never once touched the overdrive lockout and kept the chip in tow mode (+75hp or somewhere in the neighborhood). Only time I blew smoke was getting on the highway, and we pulled 80-90 without even breaking a sweat pulling my 1800-ish lb popup camper. Felt like it wasn't even there, and I didn't even think twice about running the AC. We swung over 15 MPG doing it too. The Jeep dropped down to 10 pulling the camper.

People have asked me if I felt I needed a tow rig for the Heep. I tell them absolutely not. My Jeep is built to be dual purpose, but it's not as comfy on the highway as it was before I lifted and modded it. The truck lets us go pretty much anywhere we want, and pretty damn comfy. I don't see myself ever needing to pull something heavier than what this rig can handle. Pulling the popup or pulling the Jeep, it feels great.

Well, I thought it was loveland but It has been a while. We were on our way to Moab from Indiana. IT was a gas motor and OD was not a option on the climbs. It was pretty much 3rd all the way up.

Wow. Out here you more than likely would've gotten more than 6k. It wasn't easy finding my 7.3
