The truck has plenty of power for what I am towing.
Thanks, I appreciate the response.

We use a Land Rover Discovery to tow the 19' Sea Ray and our Waverunner. It's probably not anyone's idea of the perfect tow vehicle but it does a nice job, is comfortable, and has a high enough stance that it doesn't have to go far under water to put the boat on the trailer. I bought it specifically for a tow vehicle and the prior owner used it for his boat as well.

4 inch catless exhaust, AB air box and Edge Juice with Attitude.
Edge Juice with attitude can be put on any diesel. Ford, Chevy or Dodge.
Buddy just put one on his Chevy durimax. I have a dash hawk which clocks how fast you do the quarter and 1/8th mile I use on the roadster and his complete stock 4 door 2500 diesel went 14.35 in the quarter with just adding the edge Aftermarket unit. Its about 600 dollars but the first setting is for fuel millage then the other 5 are for power. E bay is a good place to find these toys. Just make sure you get the one thats for your year and engion. All of them are different.
jbryan,,dadriva Great looking trucks and those fords are flying.

Dedicated tow rig. This truck has truly spent most of it's life towing, MX trailers, boat trailers, jetski trailers, etc. For the first time in a long time I actually drove it without a trailer attached recently and it felt sort of fast My son quickly pointed out that she was old and slow, and that I am just not familiar with how it feels without something attached.

The Titan started out as our tow truck but now we use it every weekend and put 14k on it last year as a extra vehicle. The boat is a 27 contender w/ F225. We leave the boat very close to the ramp maybe half mile each way so don't really need a diesel, last week I just mad our bi annual big tow which is only 60 mi and the Titan does a great job, only thing I would change is i would add air bags on the back for a little boost when towing. The Tahoe is my everyday vehicle and LOVE it. Had it since april and put 12k on her. Ive never pull the boat with her other then down the street for gas. After having the Tahoe I am just in love with the GM 2500 dmax. They're are just so nice, easy to drive, comfy, and so strong.
We pulled the this boat with a VW Touareg for a season. It did just fine, had air suspension so it always looked level. You should have seen the faces at the ramp when it would just creep up the ramp, no spinning the tires or any noise. Slow and steady, mean while guys with 250 making fools of themselves.

Finally got a pic pulling the Bay Rider. 2008 Toyota Tundra, 6 inch lift with 35x12.50R20 Toyo Open Country MT's. The truck pulls that boat great, the only problem is that I get about 9-10 mpg pulling it. In case you are wondering, we don't pull our Triton. She moves by water if she has to go somewhere.
