I do take exception to the people that seem to think they know better than the engineers that actually design and build trucks and seem to think the only possible way to pull a horse trailer is with a large diesel. People ask questions about pulling a simple little bumper pull back and forth to the park and posters on here tell them that doing that with anything smaller than a Mac truck is a mortal sin. Companies like Ford put alot of research and testing into vehicle design and I tend to put more credence into their recommendations than what Billybob down the road says. People that post truck questions I tend to tell to read the owners manual or look up the specs and follow the manufacturers recommendation.
I also take exception to totally bogus false statements pulled out of thin air.
Those that make outlandish unsubstantiated claims shouldnt be upset when someone points them out.
Yep diesels are great, they make good tow engines, but lots and lots of people tow with gas engines in 1/2 and 3/4 ton vehicles everyday so "Everyone" doesnt tow with a diesel.
I don't get where I acted like I know everything? If anyone is that's you. And it's funny how your getting all worked up over a simple question I asked that has no harm intended. It was just how I worded the question but yes the majority of people do tow with a diesal. No reason to come on here and try to act like your gods gift to trucks. Posted via Mobile Device
