The Beast: 2017 2500 6.7l cd Rockwood 8327ss

set up the WDH this morning for the new tv (said bye to my beloved 2014 1500 longhorn a few days ago) and took it out for a spin on the interstate to see how she tows. Set up cruise for 70mph and could take my hands of the steering wheel. Wow! couldn't ever think of doing that with my 1500. She's my granite crystal BEAST!

2380lbs. I also drove to our local CAT scales this morning and weighed tv and trailer together (16,990lbs) and the trailer (7660lbs) while hooked up.

Seems pretty typical for the diesel 2500 / 250. Mines 24 and some change.

Thank you!! Mine is 2233 on the SuperDuty. I have yet to get to the scales with the new truck. I traded in my 2016 Silverado because I was over every limit with the trailer.

Sweet! Which model is it? Did it come with the black wheels? I was wondering what mine would look like with them.

No these rims did not come with the trailer. One of the first things I did was upgrade the rims and tires to the new Goodyear Endurance tires. I love them. They ride great and are balanced correctly unlike the factory ones. I got the rims from Discount Tire. They look great. They are aluminum covered in matte black. Click image for larger version
