So my 96 1/2 ton with the 5.9 is feeling extremely sluggish when we tow our snowmobile trailer.
The trailer is about 1500 pounds plus another 2000 with the machines. It does fine on flatland, but that's not where the snow is. We took it up a.... 30% grade abouts.... It was like it was towing 7K! My brothers Dakota with the 5.2 towed the thing just as well.
So is my truck just retarded or do these trucks wus out? It made it up the hill, but my dad had to kick it into 1 gear and let it chug up the hill.
BTW we were going about 35-40 up the hill.
It does really well going down hill with the trailer brakes. hahaha
A few years ago we had it towing our gob of crap 02 Yukon up a 20% grade at about 40 and it had the same results.
