2013 Ram 1500 HEMI Sport Takes on Tundra & the Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Episode 5 )



( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Ram1500 Sport Crew Cab is a bad ass looking pickup. But will it tow as good as it looks? Watch this Ike Gauntlet episode 5 to find out.

The 2014 Toyota Tundra Pickup is built to tow. But is it better than the Ram 1500 We decided to find out by putting both pickups up against each other in a Mega Mashup Sequel. Once again both trucks tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the Rough up one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That’s enough elevation and grade to test the most powerful of pickups. Is the Toyota Tundra up to the task of towing a over 7,000 pounds up to the top of the tunnel?

In fact according to Toyota this pickup can tow up to 9,600 pounds. That’s enough weight to need a commercial truckers license in most states. In this first TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the Ike Gauntlet see how fast it will tow around 7,200 pounds of old American Luxury car plus people and gear 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the help of our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).
