F350 6.2L Towing 10k Lbs Video

Hi All
Went out camping this weekend. Towing our 10k lb. 5ver with a dingy behind it Thought i would make a short video from a dead stop up to about 60 mph before backing out. Truck has stock exhaust with the 4.30 gear set and our 87 Tune. Basically when in doubt just let it rev out!


Heres what i was towing

I always wanted a V10 in a 2wd regular cab, but ... alas, kids

That stock exhaust sounds FINE...

yep,
know the sound.. I was pulling about 16-17k for the last 1000 miles I heard a lot of that - out I-10 from the hill country - way west Tx.. & back..

Mike - the 87 Perf/tow tune seemed to work flawlessly..

Got to empty last night and filled with 93 on top of about 2-3 gals of 87 - got home and tuned to the 91 perf/tow - drove about 200 miles this am & it felt pretty good - overall with the 3.73's at highway speeds the 6.2 will rock..

Even with the heavy trailer (btw I know that I was loaded heavy - some might think overloaded - but we have to do what we have to do..) this 6.2 will pull!

LOL Only thing that was out of place was the paper towels. They were unrolled on the floor.

I would love to see a 2005-2010 ford f-350 crew 4x4 v10 pull the same load and compare pulling up a 7 % grade...... I was looking at upgrading my 06 v10 for a 2011 and not sure if this 6.2 will match the v10...my camper is closer to 11,500lbs

dont forget the 6.2 gets a wider range of gears with the new 6speed..

what would be the real cats meow would be to get the 3v V10 mated to the new 6speed auto in a 250/350...

ohman how sweet would that be...

Mike
I don't think I got any - I'll check - there might be some when on the ranch -I blew 2 tires plus we had to change out a maintainer tire. Not sure if anyone got a picture of that mess..

But - it was a 20 ft flatbed w/ air compressor/ 100 gal fuel tank + 4 - 5 gal cans & tool boxes/ 2 spares up on the front so the pin is a little heavy(±5500-6000#). Then my JD 328 Skid steer (8600#), Bucket(800#), Grapple Rake(940#) & a 8' - 4 way blade(±600#)..

On that note I dragged that load about 30 miles in 4wd Low w/e-locker ( Up & down hills, creeks, etc. - the thing did pretty good except one time I got buried in a deep sandy creek - had to off load the tractor..

I would like to see as well. If your ever in the Myrtle Beach, SC area let me know. The 6.2L I would think will tow your camper just fine. The 6.2L makes more usable HP than the 3v V10 but does not have the torque as the V10 also the 6 speed tranny is a solid improvement over the 5 spd. The 6.2L is a great middle ground if you dont tow those heavy loads on a daily basis. My Opinion of course. I also suggest anyone that does order a new 6.2L SD to get the 4.30 gear set.

Mmaxed is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I just watched the video again this morning. While I know your load is less than mine, I don't think my V10 will accelerate like that with my toy hauler in tow. Are you sure the trailers were hooked up when the vid was taken??? Guess I may have to give it a test some day.

I would have to agree w/ Mike... I got the 3.73 and while I am not unhappy I can see that 4.30's will pull better & start better in city driving - On Highway there would be a fairly insignificant RPM change with the Six speed and therefore not a huge MPG diff ( my opinion)...

Of course if you go out & put a little larger tire on right away then you would lower (numerically) your gears..
