    if it takes off fine and stops fine when loaded then i would say that its fine to do those things.
    good luck with spelling in the future.

    My brother has an 02 GMC with the same setup. He loves it for hauling cattle but wishes he had a crew dually for the long hauls. Four big horses (draft???) you might want to opt for a heavier chassis for further distances. Just curious what kind of horses do you have?

    He's not even old enough to have a license, but for some reason 'owns' plow trucks... :rolleyes:

    sniff sniff sniff.... does anyone else smell..... Horse Manure? Or is it just BS?


    Personally, I like how he asks these questions (that he knows the answers to) and then treats whoever answered like an idiot (see other postings, oh wait, I think they've been deleted....)

    Meh. Not my prob.

    :help: Clydesdale. Appaloosa. Spell them 10 times.

    Diesels for pulling? Try a Vortec V-6. That's what all the cowboys in New York City drive.

    Does your dad know you're on here asking if a diesel truck can pull a damn horse trailer? My dad would have kicked my ass if I'd have done that.

    No one learns anything by asking questions that are common sense. Other than frustration. Anyone who knows anything about trucks (especially someone who 'owns' a classic truck pride and joy, they should be an enthusiest) knows that diesels are designed for torque, which equates into pulling/pushing power that cannot be touched by anything else.

    So, if you are pulling four Quarterhorses, does that add up to one Completehorse? In that case, the Vortec V6 should be more than adequate :jester:

    If you're tired of people making fun of you for your spelling, why not avoid it by clicking the spell check button? :rolleyes:
    Or are you just trying to get attention? :rolleyes:

    Dude, it was a joke. And a really lousy one at that.

    Forget it.
