Re: Kinda O/T Bought a tow vehicle...need suggestions
I used a 95 Ford F150, supper cab, longbed to pull a 5,000 camper. Traveled over 120,000 miles with No problems....A little slower on the hills but I made every pass in the Rockies...The last mile up was in low gear at 5-10MPH,,along with every other truck on the climb..diesel included.
I agree with most comments to date with one exception.."Hotter Plugs",,,just what you dont need to do is add more heat to the engine.
Excellent cooling is a must, tranny cooler, stay with stock fan it pulls more air.
If you pull a dolly,,,electric brakes a must. Best advice is easy on the take off and easy on the stop...Keep the shinny side up.
