    I've just joined FTE. How do I post a question in a forum?
    I have a 1999 F-250 crew cab diesel SRW w/ 2WD and pull a 36' HitchHiker which is about 16,000lbs. The GCVW is 23,000lbs and the truck is rated for 20,000 lbs. I'm now considering a 2005-2007 6.0 diesel DRW and 2WD crew cab that is rated for this trailer. You have the V10 and I'd consider that engine as well since the rating is close to that for the diesel. With the diesel, however, the 4.10 axle ratio to me would be better than the 3.73. Any thoughts on one Vs the other? What would be the advantages of going with the V10?
    I know with the diesel I will have to make sure it is Bullet Proofed. What modifications are needed with the V10?

    im a little confused on the evap emissoin issues Krewat mentioned regarding vent....Is the way you have yours set up legal for an inspection? Do you see a reason the tanks i linked wouldnt be legal for inspection? Can you clarify where you ran the line too from the auxillary tank vent? Where did you get your tank and did you make your fittings because of cost or inabillty to find them. I noticed northrntool has a gravity feed kit for diesels but the filler neck fittting is 1 1/2" i think thats too big for our gas filler necks? thank you four your input does running connecting the auxillary vent to the the oem vent with a tee fix all the vent /evap issues? sorry dont have pms yet
