If you get a F-150, you get 150 rated tires, axle, frame.

Not True in all cases. The HD Payload option upgrades the tires to E rated,Wheels to 7 lug, Axles to 9.75" semi-floater, Frame is thicker .150", as well as a bigger radiator, trans, and oil coolers, heavier springs, HD shocks, and HD Bushings and bearings. Basically addressing all the concerns listed above


This is only av on the regular and SuperCrew models NOT the CrewCab - unfortunatly.


Wrong, The Max Payload is available in regular, supercab, and supercrew body styles. My 2012 F-150 Lariat Supercrew max tow and max payload 4x4 157" WB truck was built on 2/13 in KC and is being delivered any day now. Dont believe me? here is my Window Sticker.


Could not build one online without an 8' box which is only av in SC and reg cab configs - guess the dealer has more access/options than the online build sheet.

Did you build it online in Canada? Or via a Canadian IP?

Big difference.

The 8' box is for XT and XLT standard and supercab HDs. You can get a Lariat shortbox supercrew HD.

So the HD is not av in XLT/XL 6.5' boxes but is av in a Lariat and up trim short box? Let me build a Lariat.

Yup I can build an HD EB Lariat CC but can not build a XLT CC EB HD. Well that's just wrong, but it's not to say a dealer could not.

That's a little weird, shum02. 2012 is the first model year Ford is offering a the HD paylaod (8200 GVWR) package with the crew cab. In the States it is XL/XLT/Lariat Regular or Supercab with 8' beds or Supercrew 6.5' beds.

If I had a towing question regarding a 1/2 ton pulling anything bigger than a pop-up, this would be the last place I would ask.

Why is it acceptable to hook up a 13,000lb 5th wheel to a SRW 1-ton but it isn't acceptable for an F150HD EB, with as much payload as my V10 F250, to tow an 8000lb 5th wheel? Both within their respective specs.

If I had an F150HD with the EB, I wouldn't hesitate do it, as long as I was within all the weight ratings.

x2

The HD package adds 500# cargo capacity and the Max Tow adds an additional 500#. No reason a lightweight fiver can't be used.

And a lightweight fiver will exclude lenth vs wheelbase on the EB as well.

Don't get me wrong, if I was a fulltimer, I would want a 3/4 or 1 ton to pull with, simply because of the statistically heavier parts that they come with compared to the 1/2 ton.

But if was (am) a weekend warrior with short trips, and used the truck as a daily driver the rest of the time, the cost of maintenance and the better fuel mileage would (and did) steer me toward a 1/2 ton.

You have that first part mixed up, the max tow brings it to 7650/7700# gvwr. The HD payload takes it to 8200# regardless, of other option.

And for the earlier post about Crew cab HD payload, it CAN be done with XLT, just built one with dealer few days ago (XLT, ecoboost CC 4X4, HD payload, max trailer, +other stuff). I know it won't work on Ford web, it DID, but won't anymore. If you use carcostcanada you can build it still.

I got a friend about to put in an order for one this summer. I'll check with him regarding dealer orders. Maybe it's online order issue? Most options and trim levels are the same north and south of the border on all F-Series trucks.

Regarding this truck and an 8000lb gvwr 5er? No issues with me either if the numbers say it can. Seriously nice truck but I've got a soft spot for F150s
