3200 just plain feathers. . I can pass up steep Hills. Under 50% of tow capacity. It's a Rockwood 1905
PS

I thought you might like this article on Slate:
What’s Heavier: 1 Pound of Feathers or 1 Pound of Lead? It’s More Complicated Than It Seems.

What’s heavier: a pound of feathers or a pound of lead? A riddle, explained.
You're Slate article points out why pilots are taught to believe their instruments.

If the question had been "Which feels heavier, a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?" then you could argue it's the lead.

But the actual question is "which is heavier?" The pound of feathers and the pound of lead still weigh the same (the actual question), and you can't always believe "how it feels."

So while they raise an interesting point, they aren't really answering the actual question.

Cummins 6.7 - I originally had a 2011 Tundra Crewcab 5.7 which I loved but found "wanting" on the mountain passes. I like having the power "buffer" of the Cummins.
