RE: Was finally able to hook up the new tow rig.

Good looking set up!! Nice rigs. Why did you HAVE to take it to get winterized? Easy to do yourself and much cheaper.My local dealer charges me $100.00. They winterize it plus wash and inspect the roof. I struggle with two fake hips and a fake knee so I'm sure as hell not getting on the roof!! :B It's well worth the $100.00 for me. $100 :H The wash job alone is worth that.....inspect and winterize are freebies Pretty good dealer.I'm close with one of the owners...:W

RE: Was finally able to hook up the new tow rig.

Nice. What did you have before? I had a newer F150 with the Ecoboost. The truck was costing me a small fortune. I decided to sell it and get something older. Now I can haul more and tow more than my F150 at half the price.

Was finally able to hook up the new tow rig.

I had to take the trailer to have it winterized and was able to hook up the new truck for the first time and see how it tows. I'm very pleased and can't wait until next season!! http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/20141007_111845_zps59aca729.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Superchip Flashpaq tuner for Ford F350?

Another very popular choice to consider for the 7.3L is from Dp-tuner. http://www.dp-tuner.com/

RE: Thoughts on a used Ford tow vehicle...??

I just sold my F150 ecoboost and bought a 2001 F350 Lariat with a 7.3L. It took awhile to find one that wasn't a complete rust bucket. I was lucky enough to find one down south with next to no rust. It averages about the same mpg around town that my F150 did and now I'm able to haul more and tow more at half the price of my F150. :) I would try and find a good 7.3L Powerstroke.. Good luck, Kevin http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/011_zps84ff6d73.jpg

RE: F150 3.5l w\EcoBoost, MaxTow package

I absolutely loved my 2011!! It was a great towing machine and if it wasn't for the high cost and crazy taxes i was paying on it i would still be driving it.

New(to me) tow vehicle!

Well i decided to sell my 2011 Ecoboost 1/2 ton and get back into an older diesel. I came across this one owner, rust free southern gem and I just couldn't pass it up. It's a 2001 F350 Lariat with 138,000. No more worrying about payload issues, no more crazy high truck payments and much lower taxes! :) http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/020_zpsac21aba8.jpghttp://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/009_zpsaa707a48.jpghttp://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/011_zps84ff6d73.jpghttp://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/079_zps7c18c303.jpghttp://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/083_zps588d9748.jpg

RE: Tuner for towing on a 7.3L Powerstroke

Thanks for all the info! I think I'm going to get the Edge Evolution. It comes with a temp sensor for the exhaust and mounts right on the dash so i can keep an eye on everything. Is anyone using this?? http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/T2eC16dHJIFHRzSPLcBSVZifLm60_12_zps583189db.jpg

Tuner for towing on a 7.3L Powerstroke

Just wondering what some of you 7.3L guys are using for a tuner to improve towing performance and fuel economy?? What's good and what should i stay away from? Thanks..

RE: How to move a million pound load

That looks like a job for the all mighty ECOBOOST! Obviously you would need the HD payload pkg... :B

RE: F150 Eco Boost Owner Question

I've got a Max Tow XLT SuperCab 4x4, but it has some additional options from a 'standard' XLT, but I've still got a #1920 payload sticker on the truck.. Too bad it only has the #4050 rear GAWR.. Same as non Max Tow F150's have, so no advantage there really... It's all a numbers game dance as far as I'm concerned with it all, but I'm not anywhere near the max ratings with my 13 where I was over a few on the old 97 with the same TT.. I'm happy with the EB and highly recommend them if that's what fits your needs.. Good luck! Mitch Actually i think the max tow pkg comes with the 4050lb GAWR, the non max tow pkg has 3850lb GAWR, and the HD pkg has 4800lb GAWR..

RE: F150 Eco Boost Owner Question

Thanks for all the responses. Yes, I noticed I'm going to have to change trim levels in order to get both the HD Payload and Max towing as Brulaz said. I was online and was unable to build the truck I wanted unless I upped the truck to a Lariat which kind of sucks. I also wanted the 5.5 box not the 6.5 but I suppose those are sacrifices. APT: According to the brochure the Max Towing, HD Payload with 6.5 box Super Crew has 2310 lbs of payload and 8200 GVWR and 11,300 lb tow rating. Tragusa3: What size and type of trailer are you towing. I wouldn't mind hearing what everyone is towing behind their Eco Boost. Size, weights etc so I can see how your comments relate to my proposed setup. Thanks guysI'm driving almost the same truck your looking at. My trailer is 33' 9" long and 7500lbs(loaded). My hitch weight is 940lbs(loaded). I wish they offered the HD payload pkg in 2011 when i bought mine. When hooked to the trailer I'm close to my trucks GVWR(7700lbs) with very little in the bed of the truck. So i just have to keep track on what i load. Other than wanting more payload i absolutely LOVE this truck!!! http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/20140726_100456_zpsf8754942.jpg

RE: F-150 Crew Max Tow vs. Hideout 30ft TT

Yes I am relying on other peoples data, its the data directly from the manufacturer. If that is assumed, well then******I guess nothing is real and everything is assumed. . Very ironic after all your rationalizing and number bending to say that. The axle weight ratings on most "1/2 tons" are the rating of the spring pack, not the axle itself. Strange you know everything, but were unaware of that facts. And the HD F150 uses a thicker gauge frame, I notice you assumed otherwise.... And a big whoop-de-doo on full vs semi-float axles. You need to get over yourself, and start by not posting your crazy one-dimensional opinions as fact. Not everyone buys their truck to compensate. And just because you are all religious over your vehicle philosophy does not make it correct.Amen brother!!! :) Hey, I was also told that the HD F150 uses a thicker gauge frame.. And I was told that the crewcab F150's with 157" wheelbase use the same thicker gauge frame. So I guess i can "ASSUME" my GVWR is 8200lbs and not really 7700lbs?? :B

RE: F-150 Crew Max Tow vs. Hideout 30ft TT

With the four of us we only add about 1000lbs to the trailer. I too never travel with fresh water. Usually have full hookups wherever we go and if not full then at least water and electric.

RE: F-150 Crew Max Tow vs. Hideout 30ft TT

You must also realize that many folk can't leave ANYTHING at home and load their trailers up to 2000lb over dry. While many of us just take what we need to camp. Ususally less than 1000lbs. We are heavy, about 2500lbs over dry with food/clothes/etc for a 10 day boon-docking trip but nothing we take is really unreasonable and if it's not used for a few trips it comes out. But when you go 55 miles back on a dirt road you tend to pack a little heavy, it's a long ways to a store. On a 2-3 night trip we are only 1800-2000lbs over dry, and as mentioned some of that is now part of the trailer (hitch, batteries, 2nd spare, etc). Heck we drive enough dirt that I bet there is a few lbs of dirt built up in my enclosed underbelly :-) I'm also a big fan of dutch oven and cast iron cooking when camping and bet I have 100lbs of that stuff in the TT.You do realize while you are trying to give advice and think my truck is overloaded with my setup. You are grossly overloading your trailer if you are adding 2500+lbs and exceeding your trailers GVWR... Your trailer can only carry an extra 1750lbs!! http://cdn.dealerspike.com/imglib/newinv/OutdoorsRV/2011/specs/cs_26bks.html

RE: Help! Ford (F150) has got me totally confused

Just another typical diesel owner with his nose in the air thinking if it's not a diesel than all it can possibly be good for is getting the groceries!
