Good looking setup. That 4.0 will tow that boat great.

Priorities!

Here is my 1990 toyota 4x4 pickup. Now before everyone gets all concerned about the tail wagging the dog. I only towed the X15 the 12 blocks to the lake and back. Using low range, I got it out of the water with no problems. Now my normal tow vehicle that I use is a 2010 GM 3/4 ton with the 6L. Unfortunately I have been working away and flying back and forth, hence the need to use the old truck to get back and forth from the lake. I wouldn't even dream of going out on the highway with this.

I just towed a loaner 23 ft malibu to the lake for an event for our club with a truck exactly like yours and barely felt the truck capable - glad you realize it

Friends truck, my boat.

I tow with a white and black 2004 discovery (matches the boat pretty well).

This is my new set up. Got the truck last fall and boat within the last month. Now I just need to wax them both and I'll be ready for the summer. Wish the truck was black.....the two together would look sweet!!!!!

Full ton Chevy Express 3500, tows like a champ. I couldnt ask for a beter rig. My stand up jet ski fits perfect in the back too. Too bad the ramp is only a mile away and it sits on the lift the rest of the time. People would be super jealous if I took it far.

Darn! I did see this post until after i already had my boat in the water. I wont have it on trailer again until fall probably, taking it out. Here is a photo of my new tow vehicle. Its a 2011 gmc acadia slt-1. It replaced our 02 trailblazer as our tow vehicle. It was a joy towing it to the lake. it is rated at less towing then the trailblazer, but it towed it like a champ.
