Well then I'll have to install a holding tank for the di-lithium crystals. And if I'm gunna be making all that power I'd better go ahead and replace the muffler bearings.

Sold the 1995 F-150 for a really good price, put a couple hundred with it, and so now my beat around truck will pull the full GVWR of the TT AND the family. I'll save the extra money I spent on it in gas by not having to travel with 2 vehicles, like we planned to pulling with the explorer.

To advise someone to engage in an activity that potentially puts himself and everyone else on the road around him at risk is criminal. Go ahead drive impaired, just drive a little slower, you'll be fiiiine. Not only criminal its asinine. Ya, it is.
Ehh? Now I'm a hypothetical, asinine criminal, ya? Thought you said you were a wrench puller, I missed the lawyer part of the resume.
The lower tow rating in this whole hypothetical quiz is because of the pulling power of the engine. As has been pointed out, it is the same truck as a 5.7 hemi 1/2 ton, other than the less powerful engine.
Fear not if you see me on the road, for you are safe. I pull my 8,500 lb. 5th wheel with a 3/4 ton diesel. But alas, we all know that pulling with anything less that a 1 ton diesel dually is just "criminal".

This thread asking a "hypothetical" questions is starting to become a problem. So it is now closed.
