Probably should have used the CTD for this recent trip because it ended out being an overload. But the Power Wagon managed to do the job. :cheers:

Quick question. Seeing how you seem to often haul heavy loads, and you have a cummins, why do you even use the power wagon for towing? I mean, it must feel like a complete turd after using a diesel, no?

What's your setup on these loads as well? Bumper or GN?

Actually, I don't find as much difference as you might think. The Power Wagon (410 hp) has 60 hp over my CTD (350 hp) and the CTD is still 500 pounds heavier. From a dead stop, the Power Wagon will get to 55 mph faster than the CTD with the same heavy load. The Power Wagon does make a lot of engine noise if you are trying to keep up with stop and go traffic and have the engine racing above 4000 rpm :wink:

Hauling stuff off road, the Power Wagon is always better. The Duratracs get better traction than the CTD OEM tires. Diesel torque is great - but only if you have traction.

A goose neck would be sweet - but it's nice to have a trailer that can be used by any heavy duty SUV or non-truck

Had to use a new mine location - asked for 5 tons and they dropped 7 tons in my trailer for one of the loads. The poor Power Wagon. :o
