Thanks for the help

I know the X80 towing thread was closed but wanted to say thanks for all the advice. I know the 2500 is the way to go the problem is finding one in Texas that isnt $50k. I cant even find a older model that is not all beat up. There are a ton of 1500 but I am leaning towards the 2500 because of everything discussed in here. I guess the only issue I still have is getting a 2500 I dont really like to pull this thing to the lake maybe 30 times in a year. If anyone knows of anyone selling one send them my way. Thanks again guys

Send clrussell a PM. He is selling his sweet Duramax truck that will tow your X80 and your house.

I'm actually selling a great 07 classic chevy 2500 duramax. $22k takes it. Super reliable truck and will tow anything you can hook behind it. I built it to tow with and love it, just selling so I can upgrade boats. I've got 3 other tow rigs now. I've got a lot more pictures of it and if you have any questions or interest in it let me know.

417-274-2863 call me or shoot me a text.

Thanks, Corbin Russell
