Getting ready to Tow a 40ft Goose Neck Loaded to Coloroado.

I Have an 08 F-350 just turned 60K miles on the clock. I have the AFT CIA, H&S minn Max tunner, DFP delete. I will be pulling two Land Rovers, the approxemnt weight is 10,000 Lbs for the two Land Rovers. So with all of that stated now. I have a few questions, What is the max Safest Coolant Temp? What is the Max safests Transmission Temp? What is the max Safest Oil Temp? What is the Safest max Boost? What is the max safest EGT temps?

Basicly I want to know where tho set my H&S Minn Max to start to de-fuel at, before I cause any damage to the engine, transmission.
Also what is the max I can tow on a gooseneck hitch with my F-350?

Input is greatly apprecitiated thanks.

If your max weight is 10K with trailer and the two land rovers you should be fine.

I would say that the weight should be fine even if your empty trailer weight is in addition to the 10K for the land rovers

Good luck and have a safe trip!

26k pounds is hte max you can tow with out a CDL. Your gooseneck will handle that easily. With the weight of the truck, trailer, and both rovers, you will be getting pretty close to that number. Your truck should be able to handle it no problem. The only issue you should have is tranny temps pulling that kind of load up the passes in here in Colorado. I would try and keep tranny temps under 200. If it gets to 210 I would start to watch it closely and slow down to cool it down. If it wont cool down I would pull off the highway and let it cool down. Where are you taking the rovers to?

Getting ready to Tow a 40ft GooseNeck

Okay thanks. I have My CDL. I am taking my Rovers to Breckenridge, Colorado, for the Land Rover National Rally via Santa Fe, NM where I am picking up my brothers Rover. The two Rovers that I will be hauling to Santa Fe, Nm one is heavier than the other so should I put the Lighter one up front and the heavier one in the rear? Or the other way around? Or does it even matter?

Heavier over the axels of the trailer, lighter one up front. Well that sounds like alot of fun. You will only have to go up and over eisenhower and not vail pass so that is a plus for you.
