  • Tow Vehicle & Rig Photos

    We got a thread didicated to our boats and garages, let's start one on our Tow Vehicles...

    Seems like I saw a Hummerģ in here once around the garage thread.



    here's mine: 1993 K-2500 Suburban
    nothing fancy, HD 3/4 ton, 350, 4L80E, 4.11 positrac


    it could pull an elephant's teeth out through it's butt!!!!

    the reason it's not fancy??? = it's paid for

    got a later model K-1500 Suburban for the family rig.

    when we go to the lake, it's a toss up for which one pulls the 30' travel trailer

    Is there a difference between the new H2s and a Suburban? I thought they were basically the same car underneath the shell? I've got an 01 Expedition that gets the job done. But those Suburbans can tow the snot out of pretty much anything.

    To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

      The H2 is not nearly as long as a Suburban. Maybe more like a Yukon or Tahoe (non-XL).
      If my words don't make sense, try reading them backwards.

        It's apparently based on a Suburban 1500/2500 frame, but modified.

          2001 Ford F-250 Superduty 4WD, Super Cab, Lariat, Diesel. White. Only tow vehicle I have ever owned where you literally cannot feel the boat behind it - even on steep grades. It's got torque to spare and 14 MPG cruising at 75.

                      I know what you mean.....
                      the neighbors thought I was odd, when they saw three Suburbans sitting in the driveway. Sold the wife's C1500 finally back down to two.

                      It's hard to drive anything else now.

                        I currently tow with a 1500hd 4x4 / 6.0L Gas, which really really get's the job done!
                        Looking at the new half ton crew (which has a bit shorter bed on it) BUT it only comes with 5.3 Gas motor and 3.42 axle ratio..... ?? Seems like it would not be nearly as strong as my 6.0 3.73 setup? Anybody have one?
