Default After listening to the advice of everyone here...

... this is what I bought to tow my 21' Trophy WA. Everyone says you need as much power as is possible for towing. So Cummins diesel it is. I even beat a Viper V10 with it.

That's not beating a Vipor, that's smoking it!

There's something about all that black diesel smoke that makes me want to holler out,

"Breaker, breaker, good buddy"

Here is a video of a f250 reg cab wheels up! Yes I said WHEELS UP! Claimed he was making 700hp on straight #2, but the tranny was junk after 4 runs. I don't care what he was running, to get the front tires off the ground on a diesel takes some effort.

yeah but that viper broke loose at the start and then they cut out where the viper was at the end of the video so you couldnt see where it was or what time it got.
