Not saying you are wrong or anything, but if a half ton truck with a smaller/less power diesel can haul that, I'd hook right up to it and go down the road.. (same truck as yours, 2006.)I don't own one, but had a guy do some dozer work for me last week with one. He pulled a JD650 70 mph, 96 miles and burned 1/4 of a tank. I followed him, saw this with my own eyes. I crawled under his truck when we got there and everything under it is beefier than my truck (2008 3/4 ton Duramax). His tow rating is 3k more than my truck. I wouldn't hook up to the load he pulled with my truck, at least not to hual that far. I'll be looking at them hard when it's time for a new one. I was VERY impressed with his truck.

I wont say I'm right. My truck would pull that load. I don't know if it would pull it as well as the Nissan did, and I don't think I could do it without having some transmission temp worries over that distance. His truck did it without a care. I have pulled some pretty good loads with mine, and my transmission temp creeps up over time. His hardly got above normal. I might could out pull his, idk, but I do know his pulled and stopped 25000+ and did it very well. That's impressive for a "half ton"Not saying you are wrong or anything, but if a half ton truck with a smaller/less power diesel can haul that, I'd hook right up to it and go down the road..

Ok, I didn't look up any specifics, and I probably should have. All I did was have a brief look at frame and brakes, they both to me looked beefier. I guess in text when I said everything, it's easy to think I meant everything, and that it was researched. Either way the truck impressed the hell out of me.Umm, no.
The Titan uses 9 1/2" AAM axles and the Duramax (and Dodge) use the 11 1/2" AAM axle
Not defensive at all, just stating the facts. ( His truck/my truck). My transmission temp creeps with a heavy load, his didn't. I could have problems with mine that I'm not aware of. All I was getting at in my original post was the truck impressed me. And that I believe it did better than what mine would do.No need to get defensive or anything, just having a good normal conversation. It's our own opinions.. but I just personally can't see a half ton being able to yank something better than a true 3/4 diesel. You think you may have leaking transmission cooler lines on yours? That was the only "common problem" on our trucks. Previous owner on mine fixed them before I bought it and Ive never seen it get over 200 hauling heavy
You can call what you want, all day long and you would be wrong all day long.Ill call BS on that all day long. That's every bit of 20K. IF he did it that was dangerous as hell but I don't think he could get to 70 mph down hill.
You can tow that with your 3/4 Duramax if you take it easy. You wont be doing 70mph.
