What can tow my truck?

Hey guys,

Transmission went out last week and i have to tow my truck to CT to get a new one installed.. heres my question. can a 250 tow a 350? i think it can but my Girlfriend is skeptical about it being that its her truck i want to tow my powerstroke behind (03 chevy 2500 gasser) should i be worried about it being too much of a load to haul 120 miles on the highway? after all it is a chevy

Will

It'll get 5 MPG, but it'll get the job done.

it IS a chevy so I would be a little worried. just remember when towing that your truck weighs more. but it'll be fine

My friend and his 1971 International 2WD pickup towed my '71 F250 with 27ft 5th wheel RV attached, home, about 20 miles. My wife took a picture of the convoy and gave it to him as a present. He hung it on his wall as a trophy. No worries...eventually one of his Internationals will die and need a tow....and I'll be ready.

my CCSB F250 was pulled by a 4 cylinder Jeep on a car dolly about 10 miles when I had an electrical issue. Was it safe, nope. Did we go over 15 mph, nope, but it got the job done.

250's and 350's are nearly identical, you should have no issues pulling one with the other. BTW, I have had my 95 inside my 8000lb trailer and pulled it with my 00 with just a few minor issues.
