So I did a thing...

I said goodbye to a friend today, but made a new one!

Goodbye - 2015 Sierra 6.2l with max tow...

Hello! - 2018 F250 XLT 6.2l with 5th wheel prep package, 4.30's, plow/camper package, high mount camera and several other toys.

Sad to see the GMC go but wow...just wow what a difference and I haven't even towed yet. Thanks to this forum I was able to make a very educated decision. So educated that apparently here in WNY I have the only F250 with the 5th wheel package and the 4.30's in a 2000 mile radius. They had to search high and low to find it. Thanks everyone!

Congratulations on the new truck! I have had mine for just about a year and the stability of an HD truck (vs my previous 1/2 ton) still blows me away. You will love the towing experience.

Wow 4:30s. My 70 gmc k2500 has 4:10s and that thing is a stump puller. How many gears dose your transmission have? I know Ford and GM did a 9 speed auto tranny together. Wonder is they are stought enough to be in bigger trucks?

It's the G type 6 speed auto. She runs slightly higher RPM's at highway speed but I bought this configuration to tow. Heard with the 4.30's it down shifts less on pulls...time will tell.

First 300 mile trip is a week from this comping Monday.

Keep us posted how it does. I have a Crusader 290 rst. I imagine our weights are similar.
