Had some requests for pictures and fuel Econ numbers for my big hauls. So here it is. I'll do my best to keep adding to this thread with all the heavy hauling I do.
For starters. Here is my heaviest load yet and probably my heaviest load ever.
Gross combined weight 41,680.
Truck weight at ~8,600.
So 33,080 pounds pulled.
Averaged 6.8 on rolling Florida/Georgia road. Could only maintain 55 in 4th gear to keep temps down. Would never tow this weight again if I can help it.
Could you relax at all on the drive? or was the whole trip intense?
