What's the heaviest load you've towed or hauled with the Tremor? With the stock setup, I be interested to see if anyone has pics with 2000+ pounds in the back.

Towed a tandem DW gooseneck trailer, CGVW of 28,500# recently through the Ozark “mountains” with a stock Platinum Tremor. Ran about 270 miles in tow haul mode with exhaust brake engaged, averaged 9.5 mpg. Tranny temp topped out at 212 degrees F. Handled load like a champ, takes care of the rake. It pulls like a locomotive.

I have a fiberglass work body that goes on and off my truck In minuets. I’m guessing with all my tools and supplies it is around 2000# . I should be picking it up next week and have pictures by the end of the week!

Heading out to Lubbock, Texas on Saturday to tow a stock 2004 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited back to Dallas. Will be on a U-Haul bumper pull. I figure 6k max all in. Can't wait to see how it does.

Anyone have any ideas why a 2004 I-6 Jeep would have issues after 3+ hours on the highway losing acceleration and limping into the destination at 35mph stinking of gas fumes. No codes thrown, new plugs, new coils, new cam position sensor, new crank position sensor, new fuel pump. Runs fine off idle.

Wondering 02 sensors or cats?

Approximately 2,400 lbs. of feed and seed in the bed. After doing this in an F150 for so many years, it was like there was nothing back there in the F250.

I logged 12 hours in the truck today. Love driving it. Drove through blinding rain in Dallas, dust storms in Sweetwater, but got my baby girl and her Jeep home from Texas Tech to start online classes on Monday.

Total payload on the truck, 6,931 pounds.

Couldn't even feel it. Averaged 14.4mpg running at very close to posted speed limits the entire way. 55 construction to mostly 75-80 open highway. All in Eco Mode, but turned on tow/haul the last 5 miles. All on cruise control.

My 5 th wheel looks like a toy compared to that.
so I am a light weight with the 14 K
My skid loader trailer with attachment will give me a work out probably close to 20K

Getting ready combine social distancing with geographic distancing.
38 foot bumper tow, roughly 10.5K LBS. 7.3L gas pulls well but you do know you are towing a load...

I need to set up my "ultimate" problem is I have 6 trailers I guess I should decide on one and if I love it get more kits for the others.

2020 Ford F350 Lariat Sport Tremor 7.3L SCREW
Picked up my 2021 Cirrus 820 this weekend in SLC. Tipped the scale just over 11,500 lbs with a camper wet weight of 3100 lbs. We drove back to Denver taking US 40 through Vernal, Craig and Fraiser over Parleys, Daniel’s, Rabbit Ears and Berthoud Passes. No problems once we got the airbags dialed in. Maintaining speeds of 60-65 averaged 11.9 mpg on the 7.3l with plenty of power.
