Got New Boat Towing Machine!!!

Recommended Posts

I got a new boat towing machine this past week. It's a 2006 Dodge Ram quad cab with 4 wheel drive and a 5.7L V-8 Hemi. I should be good to go for about any boat I'd want now. I'm not really trying to brag, but I'm excited about the truck and decided to share it here. It's about 6 years old but has low miles for it's age at 58,000, and it's in nearly mint shape, looks to have been garage kept. It was a one owner.

Good looking truck! Same year and mileage as my F-150 and I have no problem pulling any bass boat so you shouldn't either.

Just curious, what did you pay for that truck? I will sometime in the not so distant future be looking for another tow vehicle and don't want to blow the farm since I wont be driving it much. Good looking truck

Nice truck Rooster. I have a 95 Ram and a 2002 Durango that have served me well. Enjoy!

I already have the boat. Have had it for years, a 16' V-hull with a 88HP motor. I took it to Beaver Lake once in KY, and going up one of the mountains to get there I had the pedal to the floor in my old SUV. It was a 6 cylinder. I made it up the mountain, but I never realized it was that steep. The SUV drove funny for a bit but was OK after that. Now I have enough power to pull the hills I think with no problems.

I can relate. I used to have a Dodge Dakota with a V6. Pulling a 17' tin boat uphill thru the mountains was a PITA

I got my F-150 with 29k miles on it with an extended warranty for 20k. If you don't have to have 4x4 you can get one with low mileage for less than 15k if you shop around. If you can deal with a standard cab you could probably find one for even less.
