I have a 2000 lamb w/ the 5.2. If i recall correctly, the 5.9 is not a entirety lot more powerful (something like 20hp), yet is markedly much more piggy w/ the gas. Mine trailer isn"t much different than yours, either, in regards to weight. While the truck pulls it just "fine", i wouldn"t contact it "stellar". Ns mean, its really steady and also stable and all that, in terms of handling...but its quite "pokey" on the hills. Its just the method the power band is on these motors, and also the mix of a "cruise" form rear end ratio...its gained nuthin" on the hills, uneven its in 2nd gear, w/ the motor roaring at high rpm. Girlfriend really acquire a show of what they mean when they to speak "behind the strength curve"; if you begin off at the bottom the a hill walk 65mph (which is about as quick as you ever want come go, anyway), you have the right to maintain highway rate all the way up the hill. However most often, there"s who in front that doesn"t wanna go quite that fast...you dip below 60, and before you know it, you"ll be going 45mph in 2nd gear.

anyway, this truck has a 3.55 rear end. I don"t recognize if over there are any type of out over there w/ a far better ratio (3.73 or better), but I wouldn"t buy another one without that. The deisel...well, it is a different animal, entirely, since that only comes w/ a 3/4 ton truck. Therefore it"ll likely have a much better rear finish ratio, or the power to conquer it.
