SYNC is great.

There is even an easy mod that allows one to tap into a hidden USB port and run an extension to the glove box. Being from Missouri (seriously), I would want to actually try it out before plunking down the bucks, especially since that is the only Sync feature I am interested in.

The SYNC system is AWESOME! Compatible with a multitude of music players and smart phones. I have a 160gb iPod classic. The center console has a slot to hold the player out of sight. USB connects into the base of the dash just forward of the shifter. Once the system indexes the iPod you can control the entire thing by voice. Does take some getting used to e.g. if I want to play the soundtrack from TRON Legacy I have to say "Play album, T R O N Legacy" Any word which is all CAPS has to be spelled out. But the system is great. I did have one issue when the system said "voice recognition is not supported for this device" For some reason it appeared the USB, cable, Apple supplied did not work, switched out with another iPod cable and back to working w/o issues. The cables somehow got switched I guess. In regard to the 36 Gal tank on 2012's this is a good idea and I wish my 2011 had it. But on the other side of the coin, the added fuel does bite into towing capacity. Being that the winter months have settled in I haven't had a chance to tow my TT yet and am really itching to do so.

The rear view camera saved my marriage. Much cheaper to opt for the camera than alimony and child support.

I was seriously thinking of buying a F150 EcoBoost but the have some friends/family skeptical of its towing abilities (they're diesel folks). For those of you that already own and have towed with an Ecoboost....any regrets? If you had to say one thing negative about your truck, what would it be?

I should add that I bought my camper late in the season and haven't even towed it off the lot. I'm pretty sure though I don't want tow it with my 10-year old 4.6L Toyota Tundra.

For the size of your trailer, an F150 will do very well. When you get into the 30'+ and 8000lbs unloaded range, the F150 would be adequate, but a 3/4 or 1 ton would be better.

Your Tundra would probably also adequately tow the 26BH adequately, provided you had a good WDH and brake controller.
