Took it on a road trip right after 1K oil change from Houston to Pike Peak and back with the family for 2 weeks. Roughly, 3300 miles RT. 5.0L did a great job!

Sick G-body... anymore pictures? Details?
Thanks, the car is an actual 34k GN with an actual Buick V6 GN motor. Unfortunately the car did not do as well at Sick week as the truck did on getting us to Florida from Ohio. BUT we accomplished a lot in sorting out a new build and will be back out to continue testing as soon as the tracks open around here. We are registered for Drag Week in Sept and hope to do a lot better at that event.

Here is a link to the entire build

When we left for Florida it was a in a snow storm and the truck had 2500 mile on it. The trailer loaded is 28' box with ext tongue and about 12k pounds. Stock tires at 45psi airbags at 40psi with WDH and it towed really well at 70-75mph. It was a nightmare getting out of Ohio in the weather but the truck did great. My only complaint was the gas mileage at best it was 6.8mph and mostly in the 6 to 6.5 mpg. This is my 4th 3.5 F150 Lariat SCREW and I have towed multiple 24' enclosed with about 10k wt and always got in the 8mpg range. Not sure if it was just the truck was new or the 10sp trans which seems clunky. I had ordered a 6.7 F250 in Aug last year and it literally showed up last week. At the dealerships around here there are now a ton of SDs on the lots and no F150s and last year it was the opposite.

We stopped in Summit in Atlanta my new truck and trailer were totally trashed with the salt!

That is a sick boat, how do you like the aluminum compared to a fiber glass boat?
Thanks. I really like this boat for the area I live in. I’ve always ran fiberglass boats but my son had an Xpress aluminum a few years ago that I really liked so I decided to try one. I live close to the Mobile, AL delta which has 5 rivers dumping into Mobile Bay. We fish a lot of backwater sloughs with a lot of stumps, cypress knees, underwater laydowns, and pretty shallow water. I take care of this boat but I’m not as picky about it as I was my fiberglass boats.

It runs pretty good for a big 21’ bassboat loaded heavy with electronics and dual raptors. It drafts shallow and does good in the rough water if I take it in the bay for inshore fishing.

Awesome, I’ve always loved the way they looked. But have never had the chance to ride in one!

Finally hooked my car up and went to the track. Very impressed with the way my '23 5.0 handled pulling a loaded trailer.
