This test is an 8-mile stretch of I-70 interstate from Dillon, Colorado and up to over 11,158 feet above sea level at the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnels at the Continental Divide. At TFLtruck, all trucks are tested with standardized towing weights, which are separated into their respective classes.

With the Super Ike Gauntlet towing test, TFLtruck is going above and beyond when testing the truck’s ability to hold up in extreme conditions. This test will be completed by loading near their maximum Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR). TFLtruck will perform these assessments this summer in order to gain the results, and Big Tex Trailers will play a big part in these towing tests.

Big Tex Trailers will be providing all the trailers, as well as support during all the Super Ike Gauntlet tests and other TFLtruck towing tests for the upcoming year. With America’s number one professional grade trailer’s assistance, TFLtruck’s assessments will be more accurate and have the best results.
