Default Just got it hooked up

I adjusted the W/D hitch per my owners manual. I think I need to adjust it up another link.
My truck has the HD payload and MAX tow. Trailer is 7048 empty so I have 4052 lbs to play with.

Have you measured the TT front to back. It looks a little high in the front, maybe it's an opticle illusion. Hard to tell. Nice truck though. Can you post a pic of the WD set up?

I had measured my hitch on my old truck and then set it up to be the same on the new one but I think I must have measured wrong. When I was looking at the setup it looked good until I saw my pictures. I ran out of time this weekend to redo it. I think I need to lower the ball a bit and then reset the w/d but measuring front to back will tell. I'll take a picture next weekend of the setup next weekend.

Is that an 8' bed I see there, or do my eyes deceive me?. . . I'm jealous!

I ordered it exactly they way my wife and I wanted it. She wanted the 2-tone blue with 4 wheel drive and I wanted extended cab, HD tow and payload with the 8' bed plus a few other options.

That's awesome! How long is that whole set up? You have to be pushing 60ft

Does any of your guys f150 2011 or newer shudder or wobble when you take off 0 to 5 mph when towing your campers??
