Last Train, I am really interested in your towing experience with the Ridgeline. My S-I-L ordered a new 191T Surveyor and wants to pull it with the Honda. She loves the truck and there is no talking her out of it. The weight ratings are OK but pretty close to the max. She'll have a WD hitch and sway control, Michelin LT tires but I still worry. Thank you in advance for any input.

In 2013 I bought a rust-free 2011 Ram 2500 CC w/5.7 Hemi & 85K miles for $14K. At 96K miles Ram replaced the Hemi under their Powertrain Warranty. Today the truck has 115K miles but the engine <20K so I figure it'll go past 250K as long as I keep the rust away... If I upgrade to a diesel the boys will get her when they turn 16... IMO it's worth more to keep in the family vs. trade-in...

If you take care of your stuff it will last far longer than you ever expected.

231,000 in a high snow, high salt environment! Still runs fine, but the frame's getting prrrtty rusty. So this will have been my first and probably only season towing with it.

392,000 on the Dully and 180,000 on the 3/4 ton gasser. Change the oil and fluids regularly and they'll last till the frame rusts out which is the case on both here in Michigan. But we keep pulling with em till the die.

160k on an 08 Escalade ESV AWD. Had to replace the motor mounts at 140k, but nothing else but routine maintenance.

185,000 on mine and I just put a transmission in it. Can't complain as it has been towing heavy all of its life.
