Re: towing jeep--need more hp or torque?

Yeah, I'd look at gearing. Which one's got the best gearing in first? Wheelbases about the same? I'd want the longest wheelbase too.

I love my old 79 F250. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] NP435, nice granny low first gear. Super tow mobile. Maybe someday a nice 460 in there. mmmm... For now the 'little' 400M will have to do.
