    well it's obvious that people buy more than what they need it fo.. those cummins are most likely overkill for pulling the same boat, just like how people by large 4x4 SUVs for driving to the mall...

    Thats the lake that me and my family have been going to for years. By far probably my most favorite lake. The little BBQ shack on RT. 801 is awsome. What ramp do you put in at?

    haha. I love these last laugh stories about the "little" Tacos that could. I don't even put mine in 4lo or put the locker on or anything granted I have a second gen and a little bit smaller boat but you can manipulate the brake and gas to make a nice and smooth recovery. Just use the brake like a clutch almost.
