Sorry, towpro, my 4x4 3/4 ton 1978 Cheyenne was terrible. I loved it but it was poorly designed in Detroit and terribly assembled in Fremont, CA.

I’m not sure what towing a bunch of logs with a 70s Chevy pickup has to do with truck campers. Maybe it’s an attempt at humor.

But, everyone knows that the F450 pickup bed truck with 19.5s is the ultimate TC truck. Seriously though, it’s impossible to have the ultimate when people carry everything from popups to triple slides and everything from pavement to dirt, and that leaves out the ability to tow or not.

So I lost track. Is that more or less weight than the Tundra pulling the space shuttle?

Three-quarter ton, with a 350 CID V8. That’s pretty impressive even if it was just level ground.

That’s more than two space shuttles. [emoticon]

Yeah Jim, I thought I was going to have to get all uppitty defending the F450 pickups. But, I think I’ll just let Chevy have this one. [emoticon]

I'm grateful that they don't build them like they used to.
