    Any one tow with one? I haven't seen any negative reviews for it. I will be towing a dump trailer in the spring

    Not interested in a diesel right now.

    Have been getting rid of all my diesel pickups and going with the 6.2 gas. Tow's just fine and pushes with 8'6 v-plow great.

    A friend/PS member pulls a Bobcat S-650 with trailer, etc.... he's pulling about 11K with no complaints about performance. He also pushes with a 9.2 Boss DXT with wings, again plenty of power. Keep in mind we're about 5500-6000ft elevation and at sea level you'd have more power.
    He's a die hard diesel guy but couldn't justify the extra $6-7K for what he's using the truck for.

    Same issue here. I don't want to go used because it's going to double as a family truck. Think I'm going back into the trades for a while to build up a piggy bank

    Buddy has one with a XLS on it. Got to try it and it has plenty of power. Now he did say it got terrible mileage towing his landscape trailer. 7-8mpg range.
