Thanks! It wasn't uncommon to drop into 2nd gear when pulling the longer steep grades to keep it at 60 mph. Overall it was a good tow. I'm using the Equalizer system which combines sway and weight distribution. Can't say enough about their product. Does a great job even when the 18 wheelers are going by.

This is the replacement for the 5.4L

He says he has a 2.5 leveling kit on it. If so, he's starting from level and the WD hitch will not keep it there. There is no room for hitch weight to keep level.

Beautiful truck. I too am using the Eqaul-i-zer with 4 way sway control with our 33' trailer and swear by it! You are are going to be amazed towing with the Ecoboost especial when you climb most hills never going over 2500 rpm ! Best of luck, Kevin
