Default Towing Chevy with Ford Dually.

ok, how many people tow a Chevy with a Ford? Just doesn't seem right. I found a heck of a deal on a low milage ford King Ranch Dually, bullet proofed 6.0. I here the 6.0 is a good engine if it has been bullet proofed.

Nothing wrong with that, out all of my friends that race, we all have Chevy cars and only a couple have Chevy trucks. I will note that just because a 6.0 is bulletproofed doesn't make it invincible ,I have two friends that blew them up also, coolant leaks even though they were studded..

That's what I've been towing with for years, Cummins. I had three Chevy trucks when I was younger .One brand new one and two used ones, none of them made it to 80,000 mi without tremendous expenses

Not that somebody out there has never had a problem with one, but the Cummins don't have to be "bullet proofed" because they seem to come that way.

The trucks themselves are also getting excellent reviews.

So if you are going to switch brands that is what I would look at.
