used this to tow to Tahoe in june. wifes 03 Excursion 4x4 7.3. Old girl has 275K and can still haul 8k up I80 at 65 over Donner. 4.30 gears and tunned. did about 12mpg. at 75mpg
my truck a 96f250 2x4 7.3 has always towed its life. 175k just got back from Dusy that is one hard tow at 12% grades on single lane roads steep switch backs to Court-wright. going down is the worse.

I added an engine block heater cord, camper electrical & frame tie-in kits, rear air bags, F&R mud flaps, side steps, a Hellwig rear swaybar, and class V ~57" hitch extension. The camper is a pig at ~4000#. I've driven it across country and locally with the camper & boat in tow. Got ~13.5 to 14.8 mpgs depending on speed/wind/traffic etc.
I poured a 13'x65' slab for it & the boat on the side of my garage.

Bought a new tow rig a while back. '17 Ram 3500 6.7L CTD 4x4. I've added a few things since this pic pulling my bass boat. I'm shopping for a slide in camper right now.

|WV_Jeeper91||It did better than I anticipated. It's been a few years so the details are a little fuzzy but on flat ground and on slight grades it could've went as fast as you wanted. Curves were sketchy though, I took everyone of them slow too. Going up a steep hill it did run a bit hot and was having a hard time but it did make it up there. I honestly had no problems slowing it down either. The Jeep weighs more than most probably and it was a 16 foot utility trailer. The truck like I said is mostly stock. It has a tube instead of a silencer, V8 air cleaner, k&n filter, hypertech base, ported throttle body, pod spacer, throttle body spacer, dual exhaust and the timing advanced 4 degrees. It's auto truck with 3.42 gears and 235/75R15 tires. I've had it for about 8 1/2 years. Without the throttle body ported and timing set at a stock 0 degrees it put down 130 hp and 200 ft lbs (it should've been higher but the run didn't start slow enough). It's far from anything impressive but it'll do the job. The last time I towed the Scrambler I flat towed it using a tow strap. Could hardly tell it was back there but we didn't go over 40 mph. I actually have a J10 that I'm hoping one day might be done for towing duties. That way I can have a Jeep towing a Jeep.|
