I'm with you. We aren't retired, so I don't want to spend my vacation time at 50MPH in the slow lane. I'm going to be rolling on, at safe speeds for conditions, max of upper 60s.

Anyway.... let's continue this spectacularly un-winnable debate on which truck, engine, gear ration, adult beverage etc. is best!
Entertaining to say the least!

it's because they are DIESEL they don't have to use high rpm's to climb hills

No, you are not with me on this. Please when you get out of the slow lane watch in you rear view mirror. I run with traffic what ever that is.

I want a Powerstroke Excursion like this...



2012 F250 / Excursion Conversion

PowerStrokeNation : Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum - View Single Post - 2012 Excursion Conversion

Even better would be a "de-stroked" Excursion. (Cummins transplant)

I'm not going to poke along, but I'm not going to push my luck on Chinese tires rated at 65MPH max.

Get rid of the tires and then roll on.
