Just picked up a new GMC Sierra/Duramax and now I waiting for 4' of snow to melt. That means I can go get my new Wildcat from the dealer and give it a workout. But the high temp this week coming up is below freezin.
I hope mid-April I can get it home. Winter, Winter go away, it's Spring!

I do say I have found that the Ford is the superior tow rig. I did find it quite humorous when my BILL blew his Duramax up pulling a sled trailer weighing around 8000 lbs. The Ford doesn't even know 8000lbs is there.

IIRC, it was around $630 out the door for 4 GY Marathons, 225-75-15 LR D, mounted, balanced, new high pressure stems, disposal fees, etc. and installed on trailer.

If you ever need to do some real towing just let me know I will let you barrow the Ford. Just pulled the FW 150 miles last night and had wind gusts up to 35 MPH and she towed like a dream.

That is 42 ft unit empty weight of 11500 lbs towing into a 30 MPH wind with gusts up to 35 MPH. Is the Duramax up to that kind of challenge?
