Since the first video didn't have sound I turned it on for this one.

I did not exceed 60ish mph or 4500 RPM. Trans temp did not exceed 180.

I am glad I kept the stock exhaust on this one.

I was loaded for 4 days of camping right around 14,500 lbs combined.


You have to turn it up a bit, the camera gets so so sound.

But, but, but... you need a diesel pickup in order to pull trailers!

If I camped more than 6 months a year (June, July and August we are out almost every weekend) or was heavier, I would consider it.
But this thing is paid for, has 52,000 miles and well does just fine. smile

Now you need to try a real pass like the Siskyous or over the Rockies. Deadman Pass in Eastern Oregon is a dangerous one even though it’s not so high.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

But, just think what you could do with the extra 5 minutes you'd save by pulling faster up the hills!

Unless it's an absolutely huge trailer, I'm not so sold on diesel trucks when usually a gas one can do it for a fraction of the price, with easier and cheaper maintenance.

I have been over the Continental divide with the setup at least 4 times and all through Yellowstone. Through Idaho, Montana, Colorado and down the West coast.
Didn't have the camera then. Lookout Pass, 4th of July Pass, Snoqualmie pass, Vantage. Truck does just same, I do however slow down at bit on the longer runs.
This recording was really the only one I remembered to turn the Radio down on this trip. smile

Truck is a 6.0/4L80E 4.10 gears 2WD. It is 5820 scaled with me and full tank of gas.

Then you have been over some real passes. To me , Snoqualmie is just a hill.

Heh, I know the feeling! There's several times I wish I had a bigger truck going up our mountains daily. I need to put the GoPro in there one of these days to show how slow it is laugh


Mike, how hot does the coolant get loaded up like that? Looks like you had nobody infront (directly) of you so I assume you had plenty of clean airflow.

Does yours have a secondary fan? Sounds like our 6.0L in the Class C. Pulling a car around Colorado had to let it sing more than a few times! Even with extreme duty fan clutch I have to watch the coolant temps, no idea on the transmission temps. Probably sound get a temp gauge and change out the cooler with a fan for the transmission. But the trans is shot anyways.

Is this what's termed a "hater' in BITOG current parlance ?

Nope one big fan with mechanical stock clutch. Even pulling in the heat of the desert I have not seen the temp go above 212 in the truck on the scanner. Maybe a difference in the radiator?
