you won't need to lift it....
the x-80 would hook up to that dropped receiver hitch in the pic, and the top of the boat would probably be level with the truck

it was as tall as my travel trailer

here's RyanBush's behind a Tahoe

Hey man i've worked out of a F250 powerstroke and it pulls like a champ. We've had over 25K on a 25ft gooseneck and didn't even have brakes on the trailer and had no problem. I would consider any of the 3/4 ton diesels. No problem pullin the mc or yacht for that matter.

What year is the Ford? Early 6.0 Liter PSD's had some REAL issues. I'd avoid a used one of them like the plaque. The Duramax is a decent motor. IMO you'll be disapointed with a F250 with the gasser. Don't forget to look at the Cummins, hands down no matter the brand war, the data shows time and time again unequivakly (sp?) the Cummins is top in class for mileage, longevity, and power. BTW, you'll be glad you go Diesel. If and when I own a pickup truck again, I could never buy a gasser again. Regardless of economies either way, there's nothing like pulling and drivin' a diesel. Makes you want to go oh, oh, oh (Tim Taylor grunt)

Only problem the Duramax has is that it doesn't know a MC is back there...


They're all good in one manner or another and they all have problems in one manner or another.
