    What year is your truck? Looks like the idi. Is it the Les or no? If not how does it handle the load?

    Plenty of lead if it’s an electric one, those batteries are heavy. Not much steel

    That is a 40 foot mobile home with about 100 square bales in it. This is the load that roasted the clutch that led to my question this am.

    You guys from california crack me up. HAY! I requested a police escort since I had not tags or brakes or lights or any of that stuff. Chief is a friend so he sent a cruiser out without saying what for. Guy shows up and says "sure I will follow, but if it disintegrates in the middle of the road I aint helping you move it."
    One tire blew on trailer within first five minutes..... rim worked just as well as the tire did, just louder.:)

    i wouldn't hesitate taking on the mobile home with a Fsuperduty with 5.13 gears. anything else and yes, you are going to kill the clutch.

    Sorry I didn’t see the power stroke logo. My ipne did autocorrect I meant to say is it turboed or no, but how does the power stroke haul that load?
