Default F150 pulling out a 34ft boat

Hi guys I just wanted to show you a video of my truck pulling out of the water a 34ft Bayliner, dry weight is 13000 Lb.

I know people is going to say that the weight of it is going to hurt the suspension but I'm just starting my dry storage business and cant afford a super duty.

Oh and the grinding sound was because that's not actually in my dry storage but in someone else's storage, this is in Puerto Vallarta and there are no good ramps so everytime they take it out of the water the trailer grinds.

According to that 4x4 sticker on the rear end... no, it's not 2wd.

I hope your truck doesn't break. That looks unsafe too. Can you buy a cheap used 250 0r 350 for your dry dock business??

There is nothing really to "break" on the f150 even with that much to tow. The truck isn't going to snap in half, or any component for that matter if you do that several times. I'd get a cheap tractor.

Yep. Tractor would be the best way to go. Load up the front with weight and get an old one and call it a day. Doubtful you would even need four wheel drive. But can't hurt.

It is safer to control, better power, and traction. Better visibility. All around better.

But the truck s should be fine until funds are available for a tractor.
