Re: [RC] Truck ? - Magnumsmom
Good thing you asked before just buying a 1 ton. The
dealer is being straight with you (imagine that!). You
won't get more than 12,000 - 13,000 useful load out of
a standard 1 ton pickup regardless of make. And that's
if you max it out.
However, there is some hope. Ford makes midsize trucks
for large loads like yours... their 450, 550, etc. Check
on those for towing your 17,000 load. Leave some comfort
room. You don't want to burn out an expensive truck by
loading it at max everytime out.
Too bad Dodge never actually made their T-Rex:
:) :) :)
Much luck with truck buying. Good for you for finding one
that will actually do the job.
