The new Ford V-10 will have 362hp for '06 now that they're putting aluminum heads and 3 valves per cylinder. It'll be the horsepower and torque leader for gas engines...for now.

Nissan Armada.... I was a chevy man prior, but my full sized Armada (Sister to the Nissan Titan P/U) has SO MUCH power it's unbelieveable... Also, it has side curtain airbags, in case the wife and I have kids... something that other full size SUVs do not have standard...

as far as the aol browser compatability....if you minimize your aol window, and start internet explorer from the icon on the desk top, you can usually take part in all polls, run other programs on the net etc etc.... I left aol years ago, but I knew all the tricks.
Have to say that is one of the poorest programs for gaining access and having full functionality on the internet.

We tow our 2002 25ft Safari SS (6500#) with our 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee V-8 with trailer package and Goodrich LT load range D tires. The tires made the difference. With the original Goodyear Pmetric load range B, it handled like a pig.

We use our 1957 Pontiac Safari station wagon to tow our trailer. Many of our friends use their hot rods, everthing from a '33 Chevy, 35 Ford Fordor, 35 Hudson, etc. There's about a dozen of us in our club and we see a lot of other rodders doing the same through out the Pacific Northwest. Barry

Well, I see there aren't many Ford's chiming in. Humm. We tow with the older California spec,powerstroke version, and being tweaked a bit, I never have run out of power pulling grades with or 28 footer. As for mpg, 16 pulling, and 19 empty. I have to say, many smiles per mile for us. We've owned both gas versions from Dodge and GM, and I personnally would only go back with ether of them with diesel power. Jeff

Does anyone have experience with the Chevy/GM 8.1L Vortec? Is it much cheaper than the Duramax? Gas hog?

We pull our '31 ft Excella 500 with a Ford F-350. Great torque and smooth ride.
