I know the Ohio Chapter is pretty quiet, but I think we need to announce this event on the OC page for 2014. Millersburg is driving distance for me and unless I am fourwheeling (which is a high probability) I'd love to attend this event.
No...I won't be pulling with me 5.4L
We are having a casual GTG Saturday if anyone is heading to the Piston Power Show at the I-X center this weekend!!
Ok, sounds good Mike. Was just wondering. Like I said I'm looking forward to it, and plan on attending.
I know from July 17-20 is the RiffRff Diesel East Event, which I will be going to. So I don't know if it could get pushed back till then but I know it would keep me from going if it was then, and not sure if it would interfere with anyone else too. Just letting you know.
I watched a handful of these videos a little while back, and I agree that it was very impressive with the hill climbing with that amount of weight behind those trucks. Especially the gas trucks. I've got an 01 5.4 F350 CC/LB/SRW/4WD/3.73 and I'd actually be half curious to see how it would do haha. I do tow with my truck sort of often..(not as much as I used to do to not running a haul/transport business any longer) but in all honestly she hauls what I need it to and haven't had a lick of problems. The heaviest I've towed with it was 10,000 lbs...that being my 2000 lbs pintle hitch equipment trailer with a 7800 lbs Ram 2500 CTD Mega Cab, 4WD with a blown rad on it. Actually hauled that load an hour away from home back home for a fella, my truck hauled it surprisingly well to my fortunate surprise. It was a lot of highway driving, and I could easily maintain 95-100 Km/per/hr and stopping wasn't hard either. I wouldn't ever wanna tow weight like this everyday or even every week, but in the back of my mind I know it Can do it if I ever need it to. At some point I wanna swap my 3.73s out for some 4.10s for better hill climbing power and some more bottom end torque for getting it moving easier from a stand still. Really awesome layout there though, it was extremely well done and very entertaining.
