    Show your rig towing...

    Hey folks.... new member here and on 2500 miles so far on my month old 2014 longhorn/laraime ecodiesel. Have been waiting for this truck since it was first announced and finally pulled the trigger. It's definitely exceeded my expectations and coming from a Jeep Wranlger daily driver (14 mpg), it's hands down the creature comfort I needed. My tow rig was a 2008 Yukon Denali XL (6.2 gasser that was getting 11 mpg) which has been re-purposed to be the family/kids barn/grocery getter/mall crawler for the wife.

    Anyway primary purpose of the Laraime/Longhorn 3D was daily driver (65 mile roundtrip to work) and tow mule for my boat. As far as the latter, it's the unicorn of half ton trucks. I fish year round from Texas to Florida and majority of lakes in Dallas. Starting this thread to see what else is out there being towed by our unicorns.....Here is a pic.... 23 mpg (3.55 axle) during the week and 19 mpg (towing my 4500# boat/trailer) average! Loaded to the rim with fuel/fishing gear, ice..etc...etc....

    Post up your rigs towing!

    Show your rig towing...-3d-pulling-pulling-tractorp-006.jpgThis is one of my antique pulling tractors that my Ram ED towed this past summer.It logged a total of over 2000 loaded miles all over the mountains of VT and NH and averaged 16mpg doing it.
    Although I weighed this load and know it's weight to the pound,I'd rather not post it here.Lets just say it was (ahumm) right at the trucks rated towing capacity.You would never know it from how effortlessly it went up and down the mountains.
    The truck does have the 3.92 rear and air ride which work phenomenal for towing.I actually looked forward to a reason to pull the trailer with my truck almost as much as the fun of tractor pulling itself.It is a real pleasure to actually use it as a truck and have it respond so well.

    Since this is my first picture post,not sure what's going to happen.Here goes
    Oh yeah,I had to ask my dog to stay home to to keep the weight down

    The white on white towing combo with aluminum trailer and alloy rims is definitely a match made in heaven! 19 mpg, yeah, unicorn truck....towing with diesel is a dream...I never towed with a diesel and this locks it in as diesel for life when towing.....

    One other side benefit to having 420-ft.lbs of torque, pulling up a steep sea-weed infested ramp in 4x4 is about as sexy as it gets! These trucks are made for low end pulling......
