Re: How much weight do you tow with your OBS?
I use my 95 occasionally for projects around the house with my 25' gooseneck flatbed. The trailer weighs 5k by itself and the truck handles it fine but you know it's there for sure. I've hauled several loads of concrete which I estimate total trailer weight a little over 10k, and it's not something I would do everyday.
My 95 has a hard time going up the mountain with two sleds on an open trailer, I'd love to know the secret about some of these old trucks that pull 10k lbs like it's nothing. My truck runs great empty, much better than a stock truck for sure. It also has 4.10's but is still a dog for towing, at least compared to my other diesels.
