Especially with p rated tires!

I pull with an F250 gasser. It pulls fine although in the mountains I do wish I had the Diesel. It is safe and pulls fine up a mountain but gas mileage sucks and going up the Diesel torque would be nice. I purchased this truck to haul cattle a couple of times a year for which gas is fine. Didn't know I would be purchasing a 5er at that time. Next truck...

After all the number crunching I am looking to move to an F350 SCREW SB Diesel, jus that all those trucks are $50K to $70K it is crazy expensive
