Default New motor break in

I got a new motor put in my 2008 f 150...is there a certain break in I have to do? Guy that's doing it says I don't have too...can I pull a trailer with it it's not a big trailer it's 5X8 and hauls my riding lawn mower....the guy doing work says drive it like you stole it.. I get it back today and need to go to work mowing some yards...

Uhhh, okay... if he means "carefully and safely as to not get pulled over," then yes, do that. Don't start dirt-tracking it if it's brand new.

Now this: is it actually NEW or REMAN? There are barely any NEW engines for the 08s these days, most are rebuilt...
