Towing with Cummins kicks A$$

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. Brian

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! Brian

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 them! Brian

Dood, your talking to the preacher. I wish I had knob inside the cab so I could increase black smoke blow chunks of diesel on em on command. That option comes free with a ford.
