    My New Tow Rig

    I just got my new tow vehicle after i sold my 98 Jeep Wrangler. It is a 05 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. I think its pretty nice and should work well for both the family thing and pullinmg the tow around. I just wanted to show it off alittle bit.

    We just traded our 05 Eddie Bauer Explorer in for a H2, used the Explorer alot for towing the skis (2 place trailer with a RXT and RXP), pulled it pretty good, we had the V6 with 3.55 axle ratio and it would have been a bit better with the 3.73's or 4.10's that are availible. It seems since the engine had to work alot harder with the trailer on and that tall gear our gas mileage suffered very bad..... towing from Chicago to the Ozarks last year I only got 12mpg and we had to struggle to 15 around town and only got 18 on the highway (not towing anything). Overall I would say it was a great truck (despite the dissapointment in mileage for a V6), never had a single problem in the 2 years of ownership, Im sure you will be happy with it.
    I know your probably gonna ask why Im ragging about mileage and just got the H2..... Its not that big of a deal its just I expected to get better economy from a V6 engined mid size vehicle..... I know the Hummer sucks on gas but I doubt I will suffer little if any dragging the trailer down the highway
