BTW, I ended up needing a built transmission to handle the power, first one was not happy and died an untimely death.

I would rather have too much engine than not enough, well, that is my philosophy anyway.

It probably won't be rates to tow any more than a gas truck... Reason is simple... Outside of the engine and trans, there's to many other parts that prevent it.. Suspension, frame, those dang P tires, axles ... on and on....

I think this setup will be for MPG and FUN!!! Not really for work because then you'd need to go HD in all your parts....
