Default Making the SD earn its keep

Yesterday we made the big red truck earn its keep. We ran 3 loads of 4 tons each. The trailer weighed 5k empty so 13k loaded. It is the first time I have done much heavy towing on the frame hitch and not GN with the SD. The truck did amazing, just using a pintle hook hitch and electric brakes, she towed like a champ. Cant say enough good things about the 6.7 for power either, smooth and strong with great acceleration. The SD trucks are true working machines that is for sure.

I plan to, and usually it has a black tonneau cover too. Had to take the cover off to haul fence panels last week too.
