If you're interested in used, 2016's might be getting turned in on 3-yr leases now. I like the sync 3 option as well (i've got a 2015). I don't mind the 6-speed either.
As others have said, if...

I towed a completely stuffed 6'x12' with my Jeep Cherokee from VT to NC and it was fine. Your F150 will handle it no problem.

Couple of stupid questions... did you buy it new? From the dealership that you'll be taking it to?

+2 for the Motorcraft. It's the SP-534 for the 3.5 eco. I believe it's an updated plug as well. The one's I got came pre-gapped (0.35", IIRC).

That's how I did mine as well (1 at a time, truck on the ground).

I purchased my 2015 as a CPO in 2017 with about 37k miles on it, and one of the first things I did was plugs... they were all a bit cooked to my eye.
Maybe this is overkill, but they're cheap and...

Any idea on shipping costs to 05452?
Best I've been able to come up with is around $500, on a greyhound bus!

Seems like something upstream of the solenoid at this point. And it seems like it would be electrical. You don't happen to have access to the electrical schematics by chance?

I think you're best bet is to research them on craigslist locally, and on ebay.
