Lol when I got to the top of the 7 mile hill I was doing 24 mph! I had loaded semi's passing me like I was standing still. Shortly after I got back I sold that truck and bought a Duramax. Now I have to slow down for the corners.

This is just a joke but there is an old saying: "Towing with a half ton is like sleeping with your cousin, it'll get the job done, but the long term effects really screw things up."
That's too funny!!!!

2001 F150 Screw 4.6L and I pull our 27' Bullet 272 It struggles a bit 0-30 but after that it's good. (Providing it's flat). I would like more power but I just can't justify spending big money on a new truck for 5-6 small trips a season.
