I'm going to assume you mean the new 7.3L Gas V8, but either way....Won't happen because of CAFE requirements. Ford can get away /w the 7.3 and its lower MPG in the 250/350 line b/c those do not...

If it was me, I wouldn't bother to even look at GCWR, the chance of you going over the combined weight rating before you hit the GVWR is basically zero.

You have a good amount of payload to play...

How exactly is a rainbow made? How exactly does a sun set? How exactly does a posi-trac rear-end on a Plymouth work? It just does.

No one knows. Well someone at Ford knows, but no one here knows....

Totally agree with this, but man towing that much weight 2000 miles a year? I think those miles would be much more enjoyable in an F250.

Even an HDPP F150 is going to be maxed out with that much...

The level isn't helping things, but that still looks like a lot of weight on the ball for that size boat. Our 24ft Cobalt is a much heavier boat and is only 525lbs on the ball. I would...
