BullyDog - Silverado

I just watched an episode of Trucks! this afternoon. Stacy put on some goodies from BullyDog on a Duramax Silverado 3500HD Dually. He then towed 130,000lbs!!!!! You heard me right, and his exact words were, "I bet you think I'm going to say don't try this at home, but NO! I want you to try this at home, just make sure you pay a visit to BullyDog first." What he towed was a tractor trailer with a really big Caterpillar Bulldozer on the back. I'm dumbfounded about this....how the frame of that Silverado isn't stressed is beyond me.

Did you get a chance to see, what model cat dozer it was? Perhaps a D11 R CD ? I've seen D3 and D4 series behind dually pickups before, otherwise I have to see this episode. Even with a 15 ton trailer , (thats big for equipment transporting), that leaves 50 ton of dozer, and that would be a D8 or greater. (Not likely). Jeff

Jeff,

I didn't get a look at the model number on the back of it, but I know it was at least a D8, because of the track configuration....sorta triangle lookin'...not technical, I know, but that's what it was. I watched it in disbelief myself.

Ok, I went to their web site. Well sure it can tow it, the train concept. I'm sure a stock duramax can lump along and move that amount of weight also, but nether are going to stop it ! Jeff

Hey, who said anything about stopping? I just said it towed it, LOL. That's still a ton of weight, though, but really cool.

Well MM, as my Drill Instructor used to say, "There's always got to be one"...too funny; I guess I should have said "a bunch of weight", then I would have been okay,
