F150 max tow and heavy duty payload

Anyone tow with a f150 4x4 ecoboost crew 6.5' bed with max tow and also heavy duty payload package. I have a 267 bhs. Just wondering how that particular truck would do. Currently pull with a 2011 f150 5.0, 2wd crew, 5.5'bed and 355 gears. I lm in houston and we mostly travel to the Texas hill country. Thanks!

Should be fine. I have a 32TSBH and hauled it through some hills just fine with the same set up for the truck.

I tow a 273 octane around 8500# loaded 2015 crew 5.5 box 3.5 Eco beast 3.31 gears 4x4 and have had it in the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia and it honestly never broke a sweat. I also run bags with 50psi and a equalizer hitch. That motor and gear ratio of the max tow would probably pull two of what your talking and still have power left in her in the mountains. I've been pulling trailers with v8 gassers for 20+ years and I've never had anything close to a pulling platform of this truck.

Well, he's exceeding his payload capacity BIG TIME, and his max combined weight rating, and the rating for his rear and front axles. The question isn't what the eco boost can pull, the question is how much weight can you put on that hitch before you destroy your truck. Your friend / i.e. the 'gentleman' is exceeding several of the max weights on that truck All of them actually, doesn't matter if it can 'pull' a freight train. You cannot have that much weight on a 150 chassis. Do so at your own legal and financial peril. Stories like this make me first want to call B.S., and second realize how stupid people can be sometimes.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the 150 max tow HD, yada yada, I own one. but the numbers you quoted are officially insane for that truck, and most likely illegal to tow. I feel really sorry for the sucker that ends up buying that guys truck on the wholesale lot in 4 months.

I just cringe at the thought of anyone down the line maybe reading this and thinking, 'Well, the salesman said I could tow it, and someone on the Jayco owners board knows someone that's towing 16,000 pounds with his.' It's all bad news, I'd hate to see someone get hurt mis-interpreting.. that's all really.

People do stupid things with their trucks and other equipmenet all the time and somehow, well usually survive it. I get people telling me I'm towing too much, so I just had to do a double take at towing 15+ thousand pounds with one.

I get your point and agree and understand that salesman or people could potentially read the post and justify putting other people out there in a rig this way. So I deleted the posts thanks for bringing this to my attention

No worries man, it's all good. Based on your sig, we're the same age, plus or minus a few months. Welcome to the group, looking forward to more posts

Am I missing a post or 3? Seems like you're mentioning a post that I don't see.

I do understand about sometimes folks will either intentionally or unintentionally over load an F150 or it's equivalent.

Being a conservative guy when it comes to towing, I look at numbers as closely as I can. However, I was a couple of hundred pounds over RAWR on my trip out west pulling a 4990# GVWR TT a couple of years ago. It's one reason I traded for a F150 with MaxTow and HD pkg. My truck cargo capacity went from 1496# to 2286#.

I now have room to get a little bit larger trailer now.

To add to what Adlee said, we used to have a 2012 F150 with MT and HDP and the cargo capacity was 2454 lbs. Assuming the 267BHS has a GVWR of 7500 lbs, RustyCar should be just fine with this setup.

Thanks for all the responses. The 2013 F150 I'm considering has a Max Loaded trailer weight of 11,100 lbs and a GCWR of 17,100 lbs, according to Ford specs. With my 267bhs having a GVWR of 7500 lbs it definitely looks ok on paper, even with the wife, 2 kids, 4 bicycles, and other typical camping stuff! I also plan on upgrading my hitch to an Equalizer 10,000 lb model. I just don't want to have to worry about sway. This setup should be very good, correct? Thanks again
