Maybe. ;) depends on what toys I've added on. And I can tell you that in low traction situations I can out pull my GPAs 13 f350... I would be interested in hooking chains on asphalt and seeing what happened.

And to be honest it depends. I get 10 to 12 pulling a load. 14 is best cruising unloaded. What do stock mid 2000 model diesels get? My grandpas 13' gets 14-17 all stock him driving it like a 78 year old man. He gets 14 pulling. So I get a few less miles but have nothing compared to the overhead costs... his truck does pull very nice though!

For right now its mostly stock. But kicking around a SC.
