Fuel filter should be on the inner side of the driver side framerail - about underneath where you put your feet on the floor board.
Not sure about the bumper - would hope that there would be a stamping on it somewhere describing max tongue and tow rating. Be sure the tow rating of the bumper doesn't exceed the tow rating of the truck.
The bumper has been painted about 50 times so the stamping is filled in and I'm not sure where to start scraping! The tow rating of the truck is 5700lbs. With a 10% tung weight as a guide I could tow a 5000lbs trailer with the bumper. I don't think I'm ever going to tow a trailer that heavy so I should be OK...as long as the bumper capacity is 500lbs!
I will hunt down the filter tomorrow. Thanks again.
I believe the rating for your bumper is in the 300 to 400 lb range. If you are thinking of hauling more than 2000 lbs. get a hitch safer in the long run. The filter is on the inside the frame rail under the drivers door. don"t forget to the special tool to remove the lines from it.
A class III hitch is rated for 5,000lbs, so I would guess the bumper is somewhat less than that. Probably 300lb tongue weight is probably about right. I don't believe the bumpers are as sturdy as a hitch would be.

I just got rid of my 2005 F250 Diesel, the monthly cost of ownership got out of control. I think It's bumper was rated at 500lbs. I guess the bumper on the 150 is good for a motorcycle or jet ski trailer, that's about it. I guess that's why I have yet to see any older Ford pick up with a straight rear bumper!
Be carefull if you tow with your bumper,tongue wt. is around 500 lbs but if you pulling anything with any king of wieght and have to slam on brakes it can cause the bumper to bend and tilt the ball and the trailer to possibly come off (happened to a freind) just beware.
