GM 5.3 max motor ? Maybe the V6? I need a truck
« on: July 26, 2017, 05:21:57 PM »
      Anyone with GOOD information on this ?
 It goes from V8 to V4 under very light loads .
Rated at 23 MPH in a full sized Silverado
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_Fuel_Management

How about there v6 twin turbo with out this system?
Any good in a 1/2 ton 4x4 truck.
I have the boat that I do pull about 5 times a year and an airboat I will pull more often .
In the winter I pull a 2 place trailer for 4wheelers and or snowmobiles. I had a 94 Sububern for 19 and 300,000 miles with a plane Jane 350 that worked perfect BUT a deer eat it this spring. I think I want a 4 door truck this time.
PS
I'm talking used here around 2006 to 2013 ish

I don't know a whole lot about some of that stuff but get yourself a used Toyota Tundra. I am on my second Tundra and also had a new Toyota T-100. The T-100 was a V6 with lots of power for a V6. All are 4WD.

WELL !!!!!
 I got a Ford.
 2013 F150 5.0 V8 6 foot bed 4 doors and very RED!
Never had a red truck we'll se about that part...
45,000 miles and nice and clean.
Not very "Deluxe" XLT, but nicely equipped in my mind.

Yes a local used dealer.
 They just got in a Bunch of used trucks from Canada.
 They buy them up north with the exchange rate in our favor.
Hope it works out always a roll of the dice. There is still a year left on the factory warrantee too.

  :shock: Yeah on that, D! Some trucks seem to be deer magnets. It's sure a nice truck to pull your Waterbug with.

You going to let your wife drive that truck?  :wink:
