Pretty sure it is 240 hp @ 3600 and 420 lb-ft @2000. It is a nice design but for what I do, my Pentastar suits me. 20.8 with an Elkmont (barn door) is impressive.

Just curious, was this a one-time high time reading (of course head-wind makes a difference) or is it an average. Also, what kind of milage does your Jeep get if you drive at the same 55mph with NO trailer? We're towing a 24' Elkmont with a 2000 Suburban 2WD and a 5.3L, and at 55-60mph we'll get 14mpg...and that's an average. If there's a pretty good wind at our back we'll get close 16mpg.

Must admit wind drag is the reason I did not consider an Elkmont, I run at 65 when towing and get 17-18 mpg of 87 PON, 21-22 at 70 when not. Both with AC on. Or 4.5 gal/100 mi at 22 & 5.9gal/100 mi at 17.

That is in Florida flatlands where the highest point is a ride at Disney.

I think you may be confusing his "join date" (upper right hand corner) with the date of the post.
