Wonderful irony this past Sunday as I hauled my 2005 F350 DRW 6.0 from Chattanooga to Nashville with the truck I got rid of (2001 7.3) to Swamps for a EGR delete and a Bulletproof Oil Cooler. I am looking forward to being able to drive my 6.0 without constant fear.
The 7.3 hauled great over Monteagle. Slow and steady was the order as I pulled approx 13,500lbs on a stock engine. Held at about 40-45 over the mountain and then tracked nicely down toward Nashville.
Lucked up and got a guy named Chuck who brought his truck into Swamps for the same thing and liked my 6" lift. We are swapping suspensions as I want to be lower to handle my 47' gooseneck better. He has a leveling kit on his and it is exactly what I wanted to go to.
Here is the truck loaded up before we pulled out.
