Sorry I know this is a little off topic but I was wondering what yall are towing with? I'm in the market for a new used truck. My 07 king ranch 4x4 just ain't cutting it when it comes to towing. Pretty much it's gutless. I'm looking on spending around 20k give or take. So what do yall recommend. I will be pulling a heavy 20' pontoon

My 24 foot pontoon pulls fine behind a Chevrolet 1/2 ton. Have pulled it with a Suburban also. Used to pull it with an 01 8.1 liter 1 ton with Allison automatic . Didn't know it was there. I felt a lot better pulling with the 1 ton also. Lot better brakes

Toyota Sequio SUV, Vess pulls his pontoon with the same vehicle, lots of powers and have never spun tires on a ramp.

chemdawg and myself are using identical trucks but mine is a 2014 big horn ATL or whatever .. 5.7 hemi ... traded my 2012 chevy 5.3 for it and get 7 mpg better fuel mileage without trailer and 4.5 better mileage with. Lots of power too, back-up camera is dandy too... don't have to have help hooking my trailer up and mine has the ramboxes built into the back fenders ...those are nice. lots better than standard tool box mounted in back cause ya don't have to get in the bed to get stuff out. could go on and on... had no idea the dodge is this much better than chevy's

I'm very partial to dodge diesel. Don't know why I can't post pictures here. But I have one to show. I pulled my 35' fifth wheel and 21' bass boat behind my dually

I was looking into those as well but everyone complains about the gas mileage in them.

I pull mine with a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT Crew cab 4x4 and it pulls my boat fine eventhough I have a 7 inch suspension lift and 35 inch Toyo mud tires. I will say the new model GM trucks pull a lot better than the older models with the way the transmission is geared. No comparison from the older models to the new ones when it comes to pulling something.
