After having my 2000 2500 CTD for 4 months I finally did my first heavy tow
on a 2000 mile trek.
The first leg started in the Sierra Nevada Moutains heading to Lake Tahoe.
Going over the summit was a breeze. The convoys of gasoline trucks towing
their light weight fishing and ski boats up the moutain kept having to get
out of the way as I was on their ass for going too slow up the moutain.
There was a power stroke behind me with his boat that kept trying to pass on
the two lane truck passing sections. I would not let him. I punched the
accelerator and kept pulling away from him.
I got a 93' Power Ram 350 Single Axle CTD. I pull a car haular trailer
loaded down. I fixed it where I could pull another trailer behing it
so I was really pulling to different trailer whit cars on them.
Pulling to mountains coming from Virangia I could hit 60 MPH. It runs
better loaded down, and it has 250,000 miles on it.
Few days ago, i was working at the garden when i herd so trucks coming.
A Powerstroke was in front and two Dodge 3500 pulling trailers behide
it. That powerstroke was probley only going about 35 MPH. That
cummins kept getting closer to the bumper of that Ford. Finally I
guess the Ford got scared and pulled off the road. Man, you sould have
herd those two Cummins when the gas it down!! There was black smoke
all down the road. As for the ford, it started creeping back up the
road. Now don't get me wrong, Fords look pretty good when it comes to
apperance, But those powerstrokes just don't do the job!
Powerstrokes sound like crap. They make that little clicking noise.
While Cummins makes that sound that makes your hair stand up. Best
thing to do is to pull up right besides a francy sports car like some
toyota. When they sit there and make that farting sound (Don't that
just piss you off), gas that cummins down and blow Balck Smoke all over
