Lol.. I looked it up too.. under 5900lbs dry!

Impressive. The burb will do well just keep the tranny cool. You might want to think about an upgrade there (to the tranny cooler).

Just did a complete tranny overhaul on our Expedition. Heavy duty torque converter and big cooler. Big difference in towing.

Definitely.

My Titan w/Big Tow came from the factory with lots of tranny cooling but I decided to add more. A Long Tru-Cool ((14,000Btu) just before returning oil to tranny has dropped tow temps by half (gauge not calibrated, just 50% lower on background). They say you can't over-cool transmission fluid unless towing in freezing weather. The Tru-Cool self regulates temp when cold.

007matman- Nice looking

@ Campsmith. It's a new-to-us X with about 224k miles. Don't know if original v10 or trans but she runs good and strong. No oil consumption issues. The v10 has loads of power if you let it rev (which brings in heat in the desert!) but I felt comfortable pulling thru the Nevada and Utah desert! Besides, it seats 8 and has a higher payload than my old 1500!!! Only downside is 8mpg towing!
