Why is that?
I've been towing stuff for over 40 years and have never owned or towed with a diesel?

My XL rated tires are max 50 psi and #2833 load each. I run them at 40 psi just 'cause it feels right to me even empty.

It had 255,000 miles on it when I traded it in on the 13 I have now.. This was probably a couple of years before then, but I think it had at least 200.000 miles on it in this pic. :)
