Nice setup, looks real good. The guys over on RV.net would despise you for this lol

I'm glad to hear it towed well


I'm on rv.net as well and yes there are plenty of people that give me crap for my towing setup. Everyone wants you to have a 3/4 ton or bigger truck. As for now it works except for the horrible gas mileage.

I took mine out for a ride this weekend to get a feel of it before we hit the open road.

Mine is a 2011 Jayco Jay Feather X19H.

The Pathfinder towed it pretty good, definitely knew it was there but didn't seem to bog down at all and pulled it with no issues, up and down hills.

Ryan7 have you added airbags yet? If not you may want to.


I haven't yet, and I do plan on getting them, hopefully I'll get hem ordered this week.

People are surprised that a mid-size SUV can tow a heavy load because they aren't used to seeing it. I get asked about it frequently.

As far as gas mileage, unless you go diesel it's not going to be very good even with larger displacement.

2000 Tracker boat SC v16 pro angler with a 40hp merc and a 9.8 nissan kicker. pulled it a few times but I find that the Avalanche pulls it better because the boat weight is around 3500lbs

Exactly. For awhile now I've been looking at a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the EcoDiesel. I actually have an older sister and brother that both purchased one about 4 months apart. Without towing they are getting 28-32 MPGs. I'm going to borrow my brothers at the end of the month and do a test towing my trailer with his jeep. I'm on the forms and members are stating they get 14 when towing a 7000lb trailer. I'll do my own test and if it does get anywhere close to 14 It will give me more incentive to trade the Pathfinder in for a Jeep. While I love my 08 with the 5.6, it will pass anything on the road but a gas station.

Older model Polaris Sportsman, I believe its about 800lbs wet. Trailer adds another 300. Just brought it back from Cali and managed about 18mpg. I'm hoping to add my lift soon so the back end isn't so squishy. [img][/img]

I had my transmission temperature gauge installed four years ago. I just did the radiator bypass two weeks ago. Here’s what I noticed:


I keep going back and forth on what I should do. Did you consider just updating the radiator? Seems like that might be simpler than adding another cooler and fan.
