Excellent. That's the exact location of our campsite where we'll be at. Some friends will be there this Saturday in hopes to secure it for us or move into it asap if it's occupied.

I should be there either the afternoon of the 24th, or the morning of the 25th.

I have a 2008 crew cab with the 6.0 and it sucks towing. The fuel Mileage is awful empty as well the puter indicates a 9mpg average.

I had an 02 f230 with the 7.3l before so I must be spoiled.

My 6.0L gets horrible gas mileage towing the toy hauler, which is pretty darn heavy, and is very tall too. typical tow mileage is 8.5.

It does fine power wise though, but of course it does bog down going up hills, but on the other hand, I don't hammer it either - i rarely ever take it above 3100-3200 RPMs.

I'm the second owner of it, and I always wondered if the previous owner had a programmer and tweaked it some.

I picked up this used 2007 Featherlite 17'6" trailer last week, and hope to have an diamond plate aluminum air dam put on it before we leave for Montana sometime in May. I also got chrome hubcaps to dress up the wheels a bit, but took them off since I'm getting the wheel bearings repacked later this week.

I'll be using this trailer to haul my 2009 JK Rubicon Unlimited behind my 2008 F450 6.4L King Ranch diesel. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of my truck for the moment, but it's green and tan, with the super cab (4 doors) and long bed. -- I know, a bit of overkill for just towing the Jeep, but I also use the truck to haul my 40' 20,000# 5th wheel.

I also just bought a DiversiTech 14,000# rated aluminum hitch bar/ball mount off Ebay, so when it gets here I should be good to roll.

Nice trailer! I'd love to get one of those, it would make hauling the race car around a bit easier.

In other news though, I'm going to look at a 99 Cummins tomorrow, which would make the aluminum trailer somewhat of a non-issue. :lol:
