You are scaring him Reid. Mick, some of the grades are steep and long such as 10 mile hill which I would guess is about 30 degrees in spots. It does seem that the newest 275 version makes less pulling power in overdrive than the old one, and the surge is now on high idle, but overall the truck shifts better. It is just cool to pull 7,500 lbs up such a grade in overdrive at 120 km/h, and bring 12 mpg with 37" tires. Can't wait to hook onto my 18,000 lb toyhauler to see how it does.
