I've been under the truck several times for routine maintenance. It matches many 1/2 ton's for design, thickness of the frame and suspension components.
The only upgrades she's done:
- Had the dealer add a skid plate.
- Install more aggressive tires when the LT quiet tread OEM tires wore out.
The brake controller was the only thing needed for towing. The 7-pin connector, harness, class III hitch and oil cooler were factory.
My dad had a Ford Ranger, Chevy S-10, Toyota Hi-Lux and Ford Courier (rebadged Mazda B-Series) over the years. Those
were small trucks.
