wow, there was a lot of negative comments in that thread. lets clear some things up before more people get all crazy w/ the "buy a new F-250 moron"

i thought i made it clear in my thread that it was going to be my "sole" car for daily driving, towing, everything.

i live in Northern Indiana. i only get to wakeboard and use my boat 6 months out of the year. the other 6 months up here we get snowed in. it's brutal, last year we got 5-6 feet in less than a weeks time.

about my boat: its a 2006 Moomba Mobius LSV. 21.6ft weighs 3400lbs dry, the trailer is in great working condition that has the auto braking system that works awesome.

i keep my boat in the water from Monday-Friday and take the boat out Sat-Sun for cleaning, when i take the boat out i trailer it for about 10-15miles total and 3-4x a year i'll have to go over 100 miles with it. NO mountains, NO crazy turns, just all freeway.

i've been towing this thing for 2 years with a 2008 Ford Escape w/ a V6 only rated at 3500lbs capacity. The stoping and pulling out of the water even is fine.

i just want to be able to get up to 45mph and hold that speed without being drug by the boat and on the freeway maintain 70mph.

again the list is:

Jeep Commander w/ the V8 (limited edition)
Eddie Bauer explorer/ Merc Mountaineer w/ the V8
GMC Envoy Denali Package

i've ruled out the nissans and the H3 and im starting to rule out the GMC just because there is something i dont like, i cant put my finger on it....
