I dont see anyway possible! 40,000 lbs on a 40ft flat bed, with a freightliner hooked to it maybe! in 4x4 i bet a 6.0 could make a trailer move that weighed that much but there is no way it would just haul it around!!!!!

what size of dozer? lets say the trailer weighed 7,500? thats 32,500 worth of equipment! with a gooseneck a lot of the weight will be on the truck so i think he would mess things up in a hurry with that kind of weight for sure! but power wise i think he could make it move, just not tow it

I don't know about a 6.0, but my neighbor routinely tows 25,000-30,000 on a gooseneck with a single cab 7.3L F-450 for his business. I know he has grossed around 40,000 at the scales before. I know 10k is a lot of weight, but I don't see why you couldn't tow 10k more if you weren't in a hurry and took it easy. If I were to bet on it, I would guess he has grossed over 35k at one time or another.

Regardless, it isn't something I would recommend very often or for very long/fast. I have no doubt it could be done if loaded just right.
