Because so many of you out there own big full size trucks and use them to tow your rigs, Cindy and I thought it would be a great idea to start a new sub-forum and specifically to highlight them. Please use this forum to post up questions and discuss topics regarding all full size trucks and regardless of make and model. Enjoy! :cool:

Great thread idea. Although I didn't tow a Jeep, I towed other things. Here's my old F350. 1999 with a 7.3L motor. Sold it with 290k on it and it still ran great. Had a 4 inch lift, lariat, chipped, intake, exhaust, etc. Was a fun rig with lots of power but sucked to park in a town like Boulder where the parking committees purposefully design parking lots to punish anybody but a Prius or SmartCar owner.

Nice. The 7.3l is a great motor. I'd love to find a low mileage, clean one, that isn't listed for more than $15,000 :rolleyes2:

I'm actually about to go look at a "tow rig" in a few minutes. Not to tow the JK with but to use as a work truck for around the house. It will also allow me to work on the JK for multiple days vs needing it as a daily driver.

I have 90k, it tows great. Fast as hell, from 60-100 it's a fucking rocket ship.

I loved my old 7.3, it was one noisy motor with not even close to the same power.

That being said, I owned the truck two weeks and had to have the transmission cooler replaced (on top of the transmission at the back of the motor). It was a $3,500 fix. I did buy the truck off an old guy (see old man bed cap). So it did sat for long durations.

My Fat Bottom Girl. '01 Ford F-350 4x4 7.3 L. Bought her new in '01 and will never part. She has just over 240,000 miles. Currently in my buddies garage getting new injectors this weekend. Over the past few months we've freshened her up with new tires, leveling kit, all new LED lights, master cyl, hydro-booster, calipers and shoes, pwrsterring pump, side steps and probably a bunch of other shit I'm forgetting.

Did you do anything else beside those two areas?
Did you "hop up" the injectors a bit? I find that on stock gearing and 35's I can still haul the mail. But I am thinking to get a little more out of them when I do it.
I find that if I plug my truck in for a few hours, I can drive all day. So that is keeping me going.

Rancho I just went with stock injectors. With 240,000 on her I don't want to push my luck. I used to pull a 3 car trailer with 2 RV trailers on that would gross up to 27,500 lbs. She always pulled great even through the mountains of Montana. But I am planning on doing a Banks system later this year. I think their system is easier on the motor. And we are going to do the Dynatrac Free-Spin on the front axle. I'm not sure how I've made it this long without blowing my front wheel bearings.

Btw, I have 4.10 gears original. Fuel mileage sucks but it'll pull anything. 13mpg empty- 9mpg loaded with anything.


And the Chevy C10 is awesome. My first pickup was a '64 3/4 ton long bed Chevy. Had 31" Armstrong tires.

Any advice? I shied away from the 7.3 after reading a lot of people having a list of things that have to be replaced, i.e. Lifter pump and such. I just want a simple workhorse.

The 7.3 is a badass motor that keep going if kept maintained. The 5.9 Cummins is also a great motor. Any vehicle with time/miles has it's each unique issues over time as things wear, but both motors are solid.

I have over 240,000 on my '01 7.3. I've only replaced 1 cam sensor, a hi pressure oil pump and just now doing injectors. It has always ran strong. I've decided that instead of buying a new truck, at over $25,000 more than what I payed for mine in '01, I would just upgrade a few things and keep her.

Special order job. My dad was a truck driver and thought this would be the best setup for me. It's easy to tow and load. My JK fits between the fenders but only has 12.5 wide tires with 3.5bs.
The flat decks get high and the low ones drag everywhere

Kind of an old thread revival here, but i have some questions and was hoping you all could help. I just picked up a '17 super duty. This truck so far is amazing compared my '99 or even the '08 i had a few years ago. I have only had it about a week, but i love it and cannot wait to hook it up to my toy hauler and see what shes really made of.

I have been doing research on leveling kits and aftermarket wheels. These trucks appear to only come with 18" or 20" wheels, does anyone know if there are any 17's that will fit? Also, a track bar bracket or adjustable track bar is recommended for even a 2" leveling kit from what i have seen. I understand that slightest lift does throw the stock geometry off, but i didn't think something as small as 2" would have a huge adverse affect. Does anyone have experience with leveling or lifting these trucks yet? I have asked on a diesel forum and so far they have not said a word to me. definitely not the warm reception i got when i introduced myself here...anyway, here she is...

I've driven many miles in one of those. That is what we design our gasoline command trucks around. The diesel version is the RAM 2500 or F-250 Superduty which can be ordered as a 1 ton if they district has a need. I still lean more towards the Superduty

Just a half ton with a Hemi. Fortunately, I just have a little CJ5 now. I don't know how well the Ram would have done with the JK, but it pulls the CJ really easy (like its not even there) with a tow bar. I'm sure it still will when I get a trailer down the line. I love this truck as a daily and for traveling. It will make for a comfy ride to Moab etc. when I get that far on the resto.

and we are now looking at 3 horse trailers with living space. So, the Jeep sure as shit ain't hauling that combo anywhere. Found this used 2017 F250 Lariat on my buddy's lot with under 4000 miles on it Black Friday. We got the gas version and this one is pretty well loaded. Our combo really won't warrant the diesel and the added cost associated with it. Plus this will end up being a daily driver when the ol Durango finally dies. So, yaay, something else to customize but damn, I thought Jeep parts were expensive! :shock:

and we are now looking at 3 horse trailers with living space. So, the Jeep sure as shit ain't hauling that combo anywhere. Found this used 2017 F250 Lariat on my buddy's lot with under 4000 miles on it Black Friday. We got the gas version and this one is pretty well loaded. Our combo really won't warrant the diesel and the added cost associated with it. Plus this will end up being a daily driver when the ol Durango finally dies. So, yaay, something else to customize but damn, I thought Jeep parts were expensive! :shock:

Thanks Steve! We were considering the F150's but the trailers we're looking at are all goosenecks, so that pretty much decided that we need the F250. I'm torn on whether I want to drive the Jeep to Rausch or tow it now. My neighbor has a gooseneck car hauler that I might borrow just to try it once. I love driving the damn thing everywhere but man the miles are really starting to pile up. I just turned over 50k this weekend. Not a ton but still..

I picked this up a couple weeks ago, I forgot about this thread until I saw Jerryís truck today. Iíve always kept a diesel and trade every couple years for the tax write off. This new motor is really a game changer with 900 lbs of torque you really have to watch when the roads are wet. I canít wait to pull something with this thing.

Really nice truck Jerry!

Trailering Gruff would probably give substantial peace of mind. Would never have to worry about being stuck at Rausch or having to limp the 3+ hours home.

I went with the 20. Almost ordered the 22 but Iím the same way with space.

Iím really glad to hear that, I canít wait for it to come in. I think Iím going to be a little wide to fit between the finders, Iím at about 85inches with the back spacing Iím running. But at least I can drive over them.

Theyíre both beasts! Iím just going to invest once, the 2500 with a gooseneck could pull them both, but itís close. The 3500 gives that extra capacity to tow both rigs through the mountains with out batting an eye at it.

Just go my first duramax! Just picked up a 2016 with 20k miles on it pretty pumped to have it to pull the jeep. Being in the military I tend to live far from the good trails so figured it would be a good investment for the jeep. That said wondering what everyone recommends trailer wise?
Looks like $4k will get you a good trailer I was looking at getting a trailer with drive over fenders, and 84 inches wide and 20 feet long. Was wondering if anyone has any advice on trailers? Doís, donít or anything Iím not thinking of that I should think about with a trailer?298380

Go with a goose neck deck over. I have a 20 foot bumper pull that is 102" wide and rated at 10400 gross weight. I had 5200 lb axles installed for the extra capacity. Great trailer, but the last 2 times I have pulled it with my JK on it, I have blown 2 tires and had another go flat. I could blame the roads between Texas and Maryland, as each time I was headed east between Memphis and Nashville. Some really bad roads in east Arkansas. My reasons are most bumper pulls have a smaller frame, but the big drawback is that 99% of them use a 15" or smaller tire. I have yet to find a tire over load range E which is 10 plys. With a goose neck deck over, you can get 16 inch or larger tires which provide a multitude of tires in a heavier load range. And the gooseneck trailer pull so nice. You won't even know it is there.

Nice looking rig and thanks for your service!!

I flat towed with my 2001 F150 for a number of years and it did great. Got to be a bit much though going up and down the mountains with the camper in the back AND the YJ on behind. Over the winter I picked up a 2009 F350 V10 from a friend of a friend. Truck has just over 100k on it and was babied it's whole life. Now I just need to freshen up my car trailer and get a bigger camper ;)

I would get a bumper pull trailer for that amount of weight. With that truck, it would pull like a dream. I got a PJ buggy hauler with 2 7k axels. Just got back from Moab and I live in the east, I could travel any speed with confidence. For me itís nice to keep your bed open for gear. Nice truck!

Nice! I towed with my 03 F150 Supercrew for years trouble free and recently sold her with 200k on the ODO.

Didn't originally purchase this Tiger RV with towing a Wrangler in mind. Self contained boondocking was my thought and it has worked well for the last several years and 50,000 smiles. Truck is a Ram 3500HD with a Cummins 6.7, 6 Spd. manual and 4 wheel drive. Last week I ordered a JLR as a tow'd. Looking forward to another couple years before the end of the line.
