I'm guessing the Bronco on the trailer at 8600 lb with no gear is heavier than the Yota? I haven't tracked my towing MPG at different speeds yet, it's kind of an experiment in the works. I tow to Tucson on a semi regular basis (4 times a year or so) and the trip is always the same, so it is good for MPG comparisons. I want to try 70 and 65 on future trips. I think at 65 the MPG will be better, probably 9.5 mpg or so, but I might get run over or accused of having Sonora plates by other drivers.

I get 11 MPG rigged up as below. The total weight is just under 20,000 pounds. Normal crusing speed is 62 MPH.


I don't have any data on MPG towing with the camper and the Bronco on the trailer. The Bronco weighs 3800 pounds more then the Sami. In the past, just towing the Bronco, with out the camper I would average 12.5 MPG when I'd keep it at 60 MPH.


*What time are you planning to be out at the White Tanks?

I'm probably going to be out there with a few friends. One has a Bronco with a 3" BL and 33s. The other has a F-150 4" suspension lift and 33s. Probably not going that early, but before noon I'm thinking.

Call me tomorrow when you figure out about what time you'll be out there. I'll drag my Bronco out. It's been a while since I've run anything with Ferd dudes.

CAREFUL!!! There is a flash l flood warning for the area tomorrow. Some of those
washes flow pretty good.
Thanks for the heads up. What are you doin' tomorrow? Come out and play.



My friends and I are planning to be at the mini sand dunes at 11am.
Sweet. I'll shoot for that too.

I put the Bronco on the trailer already...so I'll be there for sure.
