utahtom i really like that blue on your new truck. and that boat you haul is HUGE! that thing is sweet! looks like you would need peterbilttrucker's diamond reo to haul that thing! does your truck handle it well?
The truck pulls the boat great! Although the weight distributing hitch (Equalizer) is an absolute must- Big boats on a trailer have light tongue weights because their weight is in the wrong place for towing... I have two V8 engines sitting about 30 feet behind my rear bumper! Most people think the reason to use a WD hitch is to counter balance heavy tongue weights, but it is just as critical to use a WD hitch with a light tongue weight load.
For the record: There was no Chev or GMC (1 ton) that could legally pull my boat until August of 2010. There still is no Dodge (1 ton) that can legally pull it! My F350 has been an outstanding vehicle
