If I can get you to lift those bags instead of me, that's called.......

I think that's the cameraman moving more than it is the front end.

To the other Poster... I guess there is no point other than, maybe, instead of spending all your time thinking of ways and reasons not to do something, going out and doing it.

Or maybe some people is just nutz

2013 F150 towing a 15,000 lb trailer up a hill! See more here: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/12...o-the-max.html

The distortion is caused by the YouTube stabilization program that made it look like the truck was all over

the floating and bobbing is distortion caused by the YouTube stabilization program. The unaltered video can be found here: 2013 F150 EB Hill Pull



And no, the truck is NOT overheating. The Ford Transmission is built to run at 200 degrees nominal, unloaded, every day operating temperature and can take temps of up to 240 degrees with no adverse effects. Which is why you should NEVER use ANYTHING but FoMoCo Tranny fluid and NEVER let a Shade Tree Mechanic mess with it.

It's a whole different ball game from other transmissions. And vehicles.

That's a fine line between being nutz or being an idiot. That guy crossed it. For an encore he should dump some valve grinding compound into the oil and fill the radiator with latex paint and try it again.

Somewhere on the www is a Honda Ridgeline forum. They have an entire dedicated section devoted to idiots that go around towing loads and hauling things grossly above what a Ridgeline is rated for. Its all for bragging rights.....A lot of idiots there.

I don't know. I guess if you never sat around thinking of ways to purposely abuse $50K+ vehicles, that's spending your time thinking of not doing something.

Maybe the point is to show that if it can pull over 15,100 lbs 'safely', that it can handle 10,000 lbs with ease.

And that pull was up a minimum 12% grade. Read the posts.

THAT is impressive

YMMV

just because it does it one time, doesn't mean it's a good idea, and it won't survive a 1/4 to 1/2 of a million miles doing that like a diesel easily could.

I guess it proves that it was done "safely" if you say it was.

It doesnt impress me at all. What would impress me is to see him come down the 12% grade at 45 mph and make an emergency stop.
