I've never...

So lets get a comparison here... how many of you guys pull 10,000 lbs?

In the online vids on ford's site the guy says "100 degree ambient temperature, 6% grade, pulling 10,000 lbs, WOT, going 75 mph no problem..."

How does that compare to what you guys can do with your trucks on the steep hills???

Im not sure I would want to pull 10k up a 6% grade at that speed. that being said, I pulled our 5er(10k) up through the mountains just fine this past summer, I think it was like a 5% grade though. I never ran out of pedal but then again I didn't try to break any record. I would say it is very possible to do with our trucks and absolutely plausible with the newer motors. Like I said I'm just not sure I would want to tackle that grade at that speed with that load.

Goin up is the easy part of controlling a load. I agree these new trucks will have the balls to do it. Going down is more of a concern just in terms of maintaining good, solid control.

let's compare for a second, my 35' trailer weighs around 9000 lbs empty. Sure there is no wind drag with a flatbed, but going up the West Virginia and Virginia mountians it still works a truck to even stay at 60 mph. So I guess that is a heck of a truck if it tops at 75mph.

With my toyhauler at 14k I can only pull 55-60 up the big hills around here and thats with the dpf gone. I agree coming down is the hard part. I have to go down an 11% grade for 2 miles right by my house and the brakes are glowing at the bottom.
