brushtrooper is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
I have a 18' XD 5.0 with 34k on it. I sell trailers and tow pretty much any configuration you can come up with. I really enjoy the ride, better than my F-250 I had. It handles the same weight I towed with my F-250. It will not out run or out pull a 3/4 ton diesel but it aint no slouch with 550lbs of torque. Pretty close to the same torque as my 04 Dodge 3500 with 5.9 HO. Have no fear it will pull its tow rating well into the triple digits if you dare to go that fast. Loaded to capacity and running 75-80 with ease and MPG in the 9-11 range depending on wind. I just bought a flatbed a guy had built for his Titan, it will be going on in the next month or so. You can cure the pedal lag with a pedal commander. I am hesitant to delete, I do not want to lose the 5year/100k warranty just yet. I also have a 17 regular cab 4x4 titan with 5.6, now that little truck is a hot rod. It pulls pretty **** good.
I have driven 1 ton and 3/4 tons for about 30 years now. The XD has great room, I love the interior, mine is a SV. It rides extremely good, thats one of my favorite things about the truck. I do not hesitate to hook up to 15k and run with it. Mine has the factory GN hitch, brake controller and they work same as any other truck. The only thing I hate about it is the 26 gallon fuel tank, especially when towing. It was pretty tough pulling out to west Texas and having fid a fuel station every 200 miles or so. I added a 39 gallon fuel tank and graivty feed into stock fuel tank. Its and wide at the bed and 9" deep so I do not lose much of the truck bed. I am not saying it has the same payload or tow rating like 3/4 or 1 ton, but it does pretty darn good. I have a lot about the 16' models having issues. If you want the 5.0, better get it pretty soon as 19' is the last year for it as posted above. I am waiting until end of year or after to buy one for the shop I run, I am hoping dealers will be ready to slash price to move them.

My thoughts exactly about mine. Only one issue is the 26 gal tank. Can you send a pic of your add on? I am pushing 30k miles and still looks and works as brand new.

I will get pics this weekend. I made mine to where I can bolt it to the bed rails on floor. I usually take it out when I take it Nissan. I do not know if would be a reason to void my warranty, I am just not going to take that chance.

18’ PR I absolutely with 35k miles. Tow the boat from HOUSTON to Rockport a few times per month. Pedal Commander made it a whole new truck and easy plug and play. Like above th wonky downside is the fuel tank. But there is also a 50 gal fuel tank that is made that replaces the stock tank and only sits about two inches lower. Capacity is made up in length.

Great trucks for the money despite the growing pains. I considered them for over a year and test drove several including one for a weekend where i did some towing. They do drive and tow great. I was OK with the growing pains. Specially with the 2017 and ups having the 100K bumper to bumper warranty. My dad has a 2017 gasser and it is a lot nicer with more pep than my Chevy 1500 was. However I had to have a diesel and when that was canceled for 2020, I threw in the towel and stopped considering them. I went an entirely different direction with a 2004 Excursion for the family adventures and towing capacities.
