Was worn out. Over 500K, and Tons of engine hours. Engine needed complete overhaul I figured it wasn't worth the money, considering the other repairs needed too. So I swapped the service box to an 05 C-7500 chassis.

Our sled trailer is pretty light, wanna say 2700 empty. Add in 4 sleds at 600lbs, and maybe another 600 in gear/tools/spare tires. Think its 26ft from the hitch to the rear door, 6'6" inside.

Truck pulled it awesome, set the cruise at 72 and it never downshifted or lost speed like our other trucks would do in the hills in northern Michigan. BUT our 7.3, 6.0, and 6.6 all would do 10.5-13 pulling the same trailer on the same roads. The fuel cost isn't a big deal, but it sucks having to get fuel every 220 miles. Hell the OBS 7.3 would damn near make it there on one load of fuel.

Diet time. I'd imagine it's doing quite a bit of regen cycles.

not when towing.. keeps it cleaned out actually.. egt is usually hotter when hooked to a sled.. I get the same mileage with my 6.7 towing whatever behind it.. 9.5 to 11 mpg regardless of what is hooked behind it..

Good point on the egts. Weird they still can't get these truck to get better than 10 mpg towing. My dads 04 got that back in 04. Over a decade newer and still the same mpg towing.
