I don't know how you intend to use your truck, but take a look at the payload rating on that F250 Diesel. That combination typically has a fairly low payload rating.

I totally agree with you. And include a shifter on the console. All that chrome is ugly as hell.

Try Googling for a Ford Fleet order document. I found one at one time and it gave those very weights.

It's all about that big fat torque curve on the Ecoboost.

And, . . . it is unaffected by altitude.

If you bought your SD to actually do some work, like towing and hauling, lifting your truck is going to be very detrimental to its functionality.

In the last Consumer Reports survey of owners, the Dodge Ram finished dead last in reliability. Dead last. Jeep is finally not on the bottom thanks to Dodge. More issues than any other brand of...

That's because it is NOT a gauge. It is really an idiot light. The "gauge" is "managed".

I'm pulling a 5er with Ecoboost and Max Tow; payload 1,820 and dry pin weight of 1,070. Wet pin is 1,350 and wet trailer is 8,400. It pulls it fine; plenty of power. It's fine for local pulls of a...

You are describing an accident waiting to happen in my opinion. This will be a grossly overloaded truck; with a lift to boot. Might be OK if you camp in the driveway and nowhere else.

Damn Chrome

Is there any option to get rid of the chrome grill or bumpers on a Super Duty. I'd love at least color coordinated bumpers. To my eyes, all that chrome borders on hideous. I was hoping the FX4...

Beware of encouragement to exceed your limits.

Crosswinds may be a real challenge. Your truck is going to be squirmy. You will be over that payload with that trailer.

Not sure whether you already have the kayak? If not, look at inflatables. Sevylor has some nice tandems.
