Re: looking at an 88 2500

A buddy of mine has a 1 ton with a small block. He towed my old truck doing 85-90 up and down the hills of PA. Never had a problem. Back to the question, if it's an 88 with a 5 speed, it's the Getrag, and pretty much junk inless it's just a driver. They don't hold up too well towing. If it's a 6 lug 2500, it's just a heavy half ton. Inless you can get a killer deal, then I would hold out for a 3/4 or 1 ton for your towing/hauling needs.
