Hey Guys,
Curious what is the latest flotation ice jackets/bibs that are popular? I purchased a set of arctic armor years ago +7 yrs but they are in need of replacement.

Also any suggested places to get them for a good/killer deal? BTW: from MN.

Thanks

Great info guys thanks alot, I am leaning towards just going with a 2500 Duramax, but man they sure went up in price from a few years ago :(

I really like those numbers with the ecoboost but I agree seems like if one put some turbo stuff on the V8's they would be stronger as well. I also would have to tow my 8x16' icehouse with one to be sure it pulled well for my liking as my last one was a dog... Might get out to a dealer if this one 2500 truck I am trying to look at over the weekend falls through.

Thanks

I have a 2012 half ton F-150 with the 3.5 ecoboost. You will have no issues pulling a fish house with a half ton. If it were me I would go lighter on the truck so you can get on the lake sooner as you mentioned. Also a gas 3/4 doesn't do much but burn more fuel and cost you more in yearly tabs. 1 ton diesel (which you don't need) or half ton gas. Any of the ecoboost engines or V8's everyone offers is more than enough. Maybe just make sure to get a nice tow package.


What is your gpm when towing at highway speeds? 65-70mph? Just seems like a V6 would be underpowered, are they stronger than a v8 b/c of the ecoboost?

How are the gas 3/4 ton trucks comparable to the diesels? Are they just as strong? gpm difference?

Hello, I am in the market for a new tow vehicle for a new to me 8x16' ice house that I purchased. Question is what type of vehicle should I be looking at?

A little background, I previously had a 2002 Ford F150 5.4l before but it had a hard time pulling my last 8x16 house. Specifically starting out, going up hills was very hard without dropping 15-20 mph by the time I got to the top without feeling like I was going to kill the motor, and gas mileage was a dismissal 8 mpg.

I was thinking about going with a 3/4 ton diesel but not sure if the newer 1/2 tons will get the job done (150 eco boost, silverado, etc.) and be a lot better than what I was experiencing. BTW: the ice house will have the "V" front and is 4300#'s

Anything you could share on what you have, pros/cons would be greatly appreciated as I need to buy something very soon.

Thanks

I thought it was a bad decision when it occurred last year didn't understand why they would get rid of him, regardless if he was a bench QB he came out and proved himself now time to give him a contract. Well that is how I operate, if someone can do the job hire him and don't look back!

Oh for-sure, not saying anyone shouldn't share their opinion by any means. I was just voicing mine as well with the QB

Wish they would have went further myself as it bites to have once in every 5-10 years where they go farther, but it is what it is. Im sure its bad heart burn for Zimmer as well as IMO he made a bad decision... But enough said, time to go fishing!!
