Love how I can raise and lower the Ram to connect the trailer without touching the trailer jack! The Hemi is a proven engine and provides 400 hp. Plenty of pulling power for the X2.

What year was your f150?

I'm going through the process right now of buying a tow vehicle. I've looked at both 1/2 tons and 3/4 tons. I'm amazed at how close in price a 1500 Denali (6.2) is to a 2500 duramax (Denali or SLT). I've also looked at Fords and Rams and found a similar story. I just can't see buying a 60 or 65K F150 when I can get a 250 powerstroke for not that much more. I know that's comparing a tricked out f150 to a lower trim level 250...but that powerstroke though...

I've never really understood the purpose of having an "official" blank of anything. Total marketing nonsense. Unless buying a new MC gets me $10K off the price of a new GMC, it's completely meaningless.

Other the other hand, I am totally swayed by who the official condom of the Olympics is...
