I would guess something is wrong because those #'s make my 6.2 Super Duty look good.

My honest opinion...

Start with the 3/4 or 1 ton of your choice and a 5th:)

When I had mine, it would be around 0-2psi vacuum at 60MPH on flat ground with no wind. If I picked up the pace or had a head wind, it was typically 0 to 2psi boost. Truck only, 6th gear, 3.73's,...

You are very unlikely to stay within ratings, even if you get a 1/2 ton towable. I traded my F150 HD with 8200GVWR and 4800 rear axle because I was overloaded with a light 5th. It's funny because...

The rear axle will probably be max'd or overloaded, even if you manage to squeeze under the GVWR. It could be worse. You could have a 5-lug RAM 1500.

Mainly the rear axle. The 150HD did really well, no complaints about handling or power (obviously, with the eco) but the axle was right at the 4800lb rating and I barely had anything in the front...

Sounds about right for the HD springs. Based on the measurements I did a while back, I'd guess 1.6-1.8" deflection. Click on the "heavy duty payload" in my sig to see how it does with 2500+ lb.

Even F250's only have 3 springs but the F150HD has 4. Doesn't mean it's stiffer but that is one way to identify it. I'd vote for air bags. I have them on my 250 now and it's nice being able to go...

That's about all you can expect, unless you slow it down. Once you step up to a full height TT, doesn't matter if it's 22' or 35', the mileage will be about the same on flat land.

Yes, certainly something to check for those who haven't. I hoped that was the issue in my situation. It was not. Some trailer brakes will not lock on pavement when fully loaded.

Also, as far...

Our old TT that had about 2800 lb on 3500 lb axles needed a setting of 6.0-6.5 and would lock no problem above that.

Current 5th with 3600lb on 4400lb axles (same 10" brakes as 3500lb axle);...

Hauling a full pallet of wood pellets, 2400 lb. No problem for the HD payload package.

It's hard to tell from pictures but the front of your 5th is rounded and that pin box looks long. You may not need a slider at all.

I don't have a slider with the same truck and a rounded nose...

Probably more important than payload is the rear axle rating with the max tow trucks. It's still only ~4050lb.

For example, a max tow crew 157" will weight the same as my HD payload truck. I...

This is one of the reasons I started to question using the premium non-eth. There is no way of knowing how old the gas is. A lot of stations don't sell much premium.

You are right... they do show different axle rating. I'll be honest, after all the reading I've done, I'm still not certain about the differences in the HD/non-HD 9.75 rear. The axles seem to be...

Re-read the original post. He states that the axle unit alone is rated at 4800 lb but not the springs and wheels. The HD payload package can say 4800 on the sticker because it has the springs and...

I'd do it if it was a gooseneck or 5th but not a bumper pull that long. You're guaranteed to be constantly wrestling that rig if it's anything but dead calm and flat.
