    Would you tow 2500lbs for about 2936miles, doing 480 miles a day with a taco 12' v6 4.0, with tow package ????


    please let me know your opinion

    It's the 480 miles a day that will suck. At least you'll have plenty of rest stops to gas up.

    2300lb isn't bad though.

    What route are you taking? I70 gets pretty steep after Denver, but you won't do too bad with that weight. You should still be quite a bit faster than the semi's.

    I80 has rolling hills through Wyoming to Utah.

    When I did tow... I changed my transmission/oil cooler over to mobile 1. Cheap and easy way to keep your trans cooler.

    Thanks for your service and be safe!

    I-80 was fairly simple to tow on, had a 4cyl truck and towed 2k lbs across it a few years ago, that may be an easier option if you are worried about the truck.
