Glad I added a transmission cooler. I think my tranny got replaced at 31K miles before it was my truck. Hope I never have such problems.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Those Toyota And Nissan Trucks are supposed to be about bullet proof, from what I’ve heard. I looked at a Nissan 4 door the other day. It was cool as hell. Expensive but cool

Nothing against Fords, I did after all, buy a new Ford van for the business, but I have over 100,000 miles on the Chevy with absolutely no problems. I pull the boat 200 miles each way to Cumberland, every week-end, at speeds between 70-85 MPH, with out so much as a hick-up!

Ric - My Tahoe has the 3.73 and I would guess dry weight would be similar. However there may be other things to consider w/ weight; wheelbase, 3rd row seats, DVD player. I just know it's my wife daily driver and she loves it. I drive it for the most part when the boats hooked up, can't wait until spring as I'm buried in 14" of snow. :

I love seeing the Discos on the board. I just picked this up last week. Full-time 4x4, 4.7 270hp 330lb-ft! It's like it has short-man's syndrome for wanting to be bigger than it is. But, being small gives it sub 8 sec 0-60 and 7,000lb tow rating. I cannot wait for it to stop raining here so I can take my boat out for a pull. My wife thinks I'm nuts for wanting to get the boat out just to go for a drive.

Now I'm trying to decide, 12" or 18" window decal...
or there's always the special order chrome...
