  • IYHO whats the best tow vehicle

    In your honest opinion whats your best tow vehicle ever!
    I have a 89' full size bronco w a 5.0l, 5spd. Great tow vehicle but I hate it and want to sell it. used to have a 88' full size 5.0l auto and loved it. Another great tow truck..
    Heres what my next tow truck is gonna be.

        600 lb-ft of torque at 1600 rpm
        440 lb-ft at 1000 rpm; at least 555 lb-ft from 1400 to 2900 rpm
        325 horsepower at 2900 rpm
        those are the stock hp/torque rating for the cummins diesel i put in my 1998 chevy 2500. It has a dana 80 in back with 4.56 gears and a locker. with the electronic upgrades and exaust work in a lighter truck, that thing will tow a mountain with 3 flats.

            I don't know how well of a tow'ing rig it is but however a F-350 did pull my YJ out of mud that was up to the floorboards.

              I almost bought an 06 Duramax Desiel today, I think that would make a nice tow rig, at least better then my 02 half ton lol.

                my dad has an o6 2500 hd duramax ext cab long box chevy, and that truck drives like a bmw. they have a ton of throttle and take off like a dragster, i had it at almost 120mph(good thing he doesnt subscribe to this forum) when my jeeps engine pooped, the flatbed that brought me home got stuck in a snowdrift next to our shop. my dads duramax pulled him out like nothing.

                  I drove a '78 GMC (read Gas Me Constantly) crew cab 2wd w/454 in it, towing 5th wheel horse trailers up and down California. For it's time it was the bomb!! Now I run the old mans '95 Dodge ext. cab 2500 w/V10, for a gasser it hauls the frieght! With the problems Fords having w/thier deisel provider, I'd have to go with the Cummins. I like the Dodges.

                        overgrown primadonna. i like how they show a pile of rocks that a 100k$$ truck couldnt traverse, but so many of our 10k jeeps could climb.

                          say what you want, i'd take it in a heart beat. it would be the best tow rig.

                            if someone was giving them away i would take 3, but i dont think i would ever buy one unless i was super wealthy. besides the cummins and duramax are better powerplants, and for the cost, you could have the most delux truck chevy/dodge offers, customize it and buy a fifth wheel trailer.
