    Our Soon To Be New Tow Truck

    Well after just one trip with the 385TH driving a 2006 Cummins with a manual trans, we decided that was not going to work for us, so we are checking out a new TV. We are testing out a 2011 Chevrolet, backing up with an automatic and having 4wd will be so nice when we are on grassy terrain and not slipping all over the place like we were with the Dodge.

    Thanks everyone, and yeah Shamu, I know, I love manual transmissions, but towing with one has killed that joy, it is really just the backing up and taking off I don't like, I was fine otherwise. Plus now my wife can drive it, she wouldn't touch the Cummins.

    It's official, It's mine!! But DAMN our Momentums are HEAVY!! This truck defiantly handles the trailer better then the Dodge, but you still know it is there.

    Glazier, I have about 6", it was starting to scare me when hooking up, but once I had it hooked up, it works great. Tucson, thanks for the reminder, I updated it!! Going towing this weekend, we will see how she pulls.
