I have had two CTD's with a new one that has the 6.7. They aren't meant to be race cars; but man can they haul. I agree that some gassers will beat my CTD off the line on level pavement, and I could probably beat some and catch up and pass the ones that took me off the line; but I didn't buy a CTD to race, I bought it for what they do best..."towing". And going up the mountains with my RV in tow, I'll pass any gasser that's hauling an RV with ease. In fact from a dead stop on a hill with my RV , I will outpull a gasser that has an RV in tow easily and they will be in my rear view mirror. I've never had to use the slow lane on the hills. These Cummins diesels have 800# plus torque and going downhill the EB is an awesome speed control and I never have to use my brakes. Diesels and Gassers...as I've said in other posts are apples and oranges.
By the way "I love passing gas"!

Well , I am pretty slow going up the big hills with the dodge and trailer,
I put the four ways on and just do the best I can.
I must say, I got a little upset, with another truck and jayco owner, trying to pass me going up a long hill on a two lane road, Was not impressed.
I cannot move on to the side of the road, ( will lose what ever speed I have, and the shoulder is too soft)
Some people just need to slow down and THINK!

Don't get upset when other people pass you up a hill if you're going really slow. It's dragging a heavy trailer up a big hill at slow speed for a long time that generates high transmission temps. If you're having that much of a problem maintaining a safe speed up hill then your truck is lacking for that size of trailer. Just sayin'.

The truck is a 1995 dodge 2500, one ton, it is just slow, Full load of water, If I do not get a good run up the hill, Speed limited 60k just before the hill up.
The only reason I was concern about the safety of this person trying to pass me on a double white line with traffic coming the other way.
It I could of moved over then I would of.

Why would you get upset with someone passing your struggling truck going up a long hill, that doesn't make any sense?
