Took the EX out for a pull today

Not a tractor pull !

A boat pull, LOL...


Got the valve body replaced today and put the AFE Stage II CAI on today and felt it was time to connect the boat up and see how well she does.

Needless to say, very nice ! The truck pulled the boat just as I expected, not easy to tell there was something there. But I will say this... It a big package together. Although the boat does not look as big now behind the EX verses my old Tahoe.

I really like this rig. My 17 year old likes driving it also, he expects to be able to use it whenever - he has something coming...

My sig has my mods done since purchasing it. I have a 31 row 6.0 trans cooler to put in soon. I went with the 31 row because my radiator does not have trans cooling in it. I wanted the extra large cooler also.

Thanks to all that have been patient with my questions so far !

Hmmm,

Let's see if my signature shows up on this post.

And add a picture of both. The boat is a 25' Pro Line center console, so it is not small...
