That’s just the interaction between the truck display that’s actively being refreshed, and the device used to take the video that’s taking x number of frames per second.

Same reason wheels appear to roll backwards on camera with the truck rolling forwards, or the new running lights on trucks appear to blink as well.

It appears to be the top dog right now of the gas trucks. I'll stick with my oil burner, though.

I suspect he'd make it to the top [emoticon]

In low gear at 30 mph and half a tank of gas later. We had a mid nineties Ford with the 460, it would pull anything we needed to move but we couldn't afford to feed it.

Me too! Even though I know it is not hurting the engine, I still cringe when I see a truck engine rev past 3,000 rpm. Just a side effect of driving diesels for so long I guess. Although, ironically, I don't mind it in my diesel car which goes to 4,500 rpm at wide open throttle.

Is it me or did it seem really loud even when not pulling a grade?

If you are a gasser guy i am sure it will be a good truck.

Not much of a test IMO. Did he ever get over 50 mph but maybe a couple times?
Rolling hills aren't much of a barometer IMO. Low profile trailer is also not a real good test.
It looks nice though.

You would think a rolling hill test would be sufficient for RV.net as that's when you hear the most complaining about all the shifting. [emoticon]

Who is even thinking it would pull like a diesel. I know we are all bored but vechicles made for different jobs. Chevman
