I have a 2003 FX4, 3:55 gears, 5.4L. Truck is solid. I'm a bit of a gear head having raced cars and boats most of my life.
I've done the math on the towing and have a question about the hitch. Trailer is 5110 dry with 715 lbs of tongue weight.
The dealer is giving me the ole "buy it from us and let us install it" speech. Wanting $700 for that privilege. When I ask them which hitch they want to install the say the Equalizer E2. When I do the math and research I come up with the Equalizer E4 1000/10000 part number 90-00-1000.
Any thoughts on why a dealer would be telling me to use an E2 hitch with this setup?
