2015 Ford F-350 Power Stroke Extreme Towing Challenge
The 2015 Ford F-350 Crew Cab 4×4 Dually has an upgraded V8 turbo-diesel Power Stroke engine. The bigger turbocharger and updated injectors combine to make 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 rpm. So, how does it do when towing a 1942 M2 Halftrack (combined weight with trailer 21,600 lbs) up a steep incline at over 11,000 feet of elevation? How does it compare to the Ram 3500 with the same trailer?
This is exactly what this video is about to answer! The Ike Gauntlet is a timed run up one of America’s steepest highways from 9,000 feet above sea level to the top of the mountain at entrance to the Eisenhower Tunnel in Colorado. Care to place any bets? 🙂 Let’s see what happens…
However, they’re another important part of your car that keeps your ride smooth and safe, and they need proper maintenance. Wheel bearings are what enable your wheels to spin freely. Since they bear the entire weight of the vehicle, they have to be tough. Wheel bearings can last well over 100,000 miles, but they do wear out and eventually need to be replaced.
Today it’s time for a bit of light hearted fun. We’re going to look at what happens when do-it-yourself car repair goes, really, really wrong! If you ever see anything like these on the road or in a parking lot, snap a shot of it and send it in to us, we’d love to see it!
