It does pretty well. I've become spoiled by pulling it with the 3/4 ton all the time, so obviously it feels like the boat is pretty substantial behind the Benz. I'd say it tows better than any 1/2 ton truck would, but at the same time I'll never pull it the 6 hours home from my lake again without the cummins...

Any of you towing with one of the Ford Raptors? Tow rating is 8K lbs with the 4:10, I would think that the suspension would be really soft for towing. But man, they do look like they would be fun without the boat hooked up. Anyways, just curious...
