Towed the boat to Lake Powell
 
Towed the boat down to Lake Powell last month and had an awesome time. The Ram had no issues pulling the boat and averaged 12 mpg. There were some big grades to climb but the engine temp never got above 210 and the trans never got above 190. We camped on the Lone Rock Beach where beach launching is allowed. I had to back in pretty deep to get the boat to float but I didn't even need to use 4wd to launch or retrieve. While there we made the trek to Rainbow Bridge, it took about 1.5 hours to boat there but was definitely worth it. Here are some pics of the trip.

Nice lookin truck there!!! What gear does your truck have 3.55 or 3.92? Thats very good mpg for you towing the boat with the lift and bigger tires. are those 35" tires?
