2008 6.7 towing trip

I bought a 2008 6.7 4x4 in February and took a trip to Rapid City and then to Yellowstone then back home. The trailer I was pulling was 35 feet long and is 12000 pounds dry. I pulled in every kind of weather from 45 mph head winds to rain to snow comeing out of the Eisenhower tunnel on I-70 heading to Denver going home. THe truck pulled better than my old 2005 f-250 with a 6 leaker and it also got better mileage as well. Total mileage for the trip was 3720 miles and the truck didn't skip a beat. I am impressed with the 6.7 compared to my old Ford.
