This guy is a friend of a friends who was bad mouthing Rams yesterday after I pulled up in the yard with mine. Said he beats them all the time and his truck pulls better. Turns out he couldn't pull my friends 12k box trailer after all and was averaging 5 miles to the gallon. They were going to pick up my friends Z06 Vette but had to turn around...it was funny. I had even interrupted his bad mouthing and called him out and offered him 200 to race me if he could beat me and he turned me down. I said, I didn't start this, you did and you chickenshit out using no where to run excuse. Caught him on the highway today from a dig and even let him take off first. Had him by 5 lengths shifting into second and he shut down. Best part was my friend who he bragged to about his Toyo being faster and better at towing was with me...I loved it. I'm only running a 91 SC Quick tune since my fuel pump fuse blew. Have to reload my advanced 93 tuned when I get time. Will hear his story or excuse tomorrow I'm sure... it's a 2012 5.7 4.30 gears
What started this was when my friend with the Vette saw me pull into his shop yard he asked me if I could tow him to get his car. But I said I thought it would be too much on my truck. That's when this Toyo guy who was there started running his mouth. I tow heavy equipment with my truck as a contractor. I know my limits and this trailer is like 20 to 25' long and weighs close to 4k lbs empty. That's close to 7k lbs with the Vette all the way from Lake Charles La to Houston and back on my 91 tune. Locally I would have done it. But I don't need that kind of torture when my friend asking for the tow has a Ford F250 to tow it but someone was using it. That's when the Toyo guy started on my truck....made me angry. He spoke soft and was nice but I was still pissed. He rubbed it in about how he was going to drag this trailer like nothing. 30 minutes of talk and the next day I passed and the trailer was still there so I pulled in and asked my friend what happened to the trip? He said they made it from Sulphur to Vinton La all the while it didn't have the power to shift into 5'th gear and registered 5 miles to the gallon....I said wah??? So he decided he wasn't going to pay 300 plus dollars for fuel to get his Vette cause that's what it would have cost so they cancelled the trip. So my friend went from siding with him to bashing his friends Toyo. But he never said nothing to him when he said he beats Rams all the time. So glad he was with me when we ran into him today and wound up at a light side by side. I said to my friend...watch this...watch how far back he gets....so funny. I knew he was going to try and get the jump and I was ready...five truck lengths and he let off and then turned away. Haven't spoke to him since, ha ha! I feel sorry for him now, but hey he did it to himself. I tried to tell him over and over his truck was too heavy to hang with me but he wouldn't listen. Bet he won't try or bash any more Rams!
