    You know, before I left Colorado in my rear view mirror for good when I left the soon-to-be ex, I coulda got a truck almost just like that. It was an 06 or 07, I believe, that only had 120,000 miles on it but, I didn’t even give a look because they said the bank would only finance it for 3 years. My payments would’ve been like 600 bucks a month so, I settled on the 08 halfton.

    I had know idea what I had in store moving down here and if I woulda known this great job i have was in store a few months down the road, I could’ve easily afforded it. Oh well. Lol.

    Went across the scales at 23,160 loaded up on the way to Glamis. It's all aluminum so it's under 16K loaded. I'm not gonna lie, the 6.4 is no Cummins, but for a small block gas motor it is a hoss. I set the cruise on 65 and let her eat. My problem is the gooseneck puts so much weight on the hitch I am over my axle and tire ratings, so going dually this time. Ratings aside, with 35 pounds in my airbags, the chassis handles that trailer like nobody's business. Totally relaxed, no drama at all.

    Diesel brothers just did a dually upgrade, but let's be honest, you need to get back into a diesel at some point. That thing is huge, lol. I had a truck drivers liscense, that thing would be a bitch to back up.

    Yup,

    He is working his 6.4 more than most of us. Wind resistance alone on that thing must be huge.

    It's actually built like an LQ horse trailer, so it is much lower profile than a normal fifth wheel toyhauler. But for sure going back to a Cummins.

    I do like chrome and of course white needs chrome to keep it from looking like my company vehicle.

    It loves 4th gear in Tow/Haul. It will pull in 5th. Sometimes it hangs in 4th and i'll take it out of Tow/Haul, and it will grab 5th. It also tends to bog when I roll into a hill, so I will manually drop it a cog, sometimes two, and it will stay in the torque curve much better. Otherwise, it will tend to bog, and then make a harsh downshift. I'm sure the new 6.4s with the 8 spd must be worlds better in this regard.
