    thanks for the info; your tow ratings puzzles me however

    From my research the 5.0 ratings for f150 are

    SC 3.55 4*4 145 wb 7700lbs
    SC 3.73 4*4 145 wb 9300 lbs
    SC 3.55 4*4 157 wb 7500 lbs
    Sc 3.73 4*4 157 wb 9100lbs

    My current 02 5.4 SC is rated at 7500lbs; when loaded it can struggle at times. TT is 5,000 empty 7,500 GVWR. Take 500 lbs off for passengers and cargo; 1,200 added weight to the trailer gives me a leway of approx. 7-800 lbs. This is why I am still considering the ECO/5.0 as they are with in specks. When I took the three kids and had the box loaded I am sure I exceeded the GVW of the truck and it showed when towing. Now with the the wife and me only I find it pulls great. No problems keeping 100 kms.
