2014 F350 - New tow vehicle

Picked this beauty up yesterday. I was really leaning towards getting a Ram 3500 MegaCab SB SRW but we found this one and couldn't pass it up. It's a 2014 F350 PowerStroke Platinum Edition SB SRW with the FX4 offroad package. It only has 25,000 miles on it. It's got 11,500 GVWR, comes with 3.55 rear end and 3511lbs cargo capacity (per the door sticker) and 20inch wheels and tires. Has every other bell and whistle they could think of. Only thing I wanted that it doesn't have is the factory 5th wheel prep package. I haven't decided on a hitch yet, but hoping to go with underbed rails to keep the bed looking clean. Now to get the 5er.

Good looking rig for sure !!!
Are you sure about the 11,000 GV ? my GMC 2500HD is rated higher than that. I know my cargo isn't as high as yours, but the GV is.

Yep, 11,500lb GVWR, 3511lb payload. 5th wheel capacity is probably around 15,700lbs.

Gsykora, the factory puck system can be added at a dealer. The ford puck system is made by Reese and can also be installed by them. It really is just a bolt on system with nice hole covers in the bed.

The only problem I found with the factory system was finding a ISR rail adapter that did not raise my hitch to high, I finally went with the Demco unit it is only 2 1/2 inches high all other are 3 inches or higher. The worst was Pullrite at 5 1/2 inches. I have the Pullrite ISR Superglide. My hitch sets at 19 1/2 inches in the bed even at that height I still had a nose high condition that needed fixed to get my RV almost level.

2014 F350 - New tow vehicle

Very nice truck! Here’s a pic of my SuperGlide on a Reese rail system that’s universal for any factory puck set up. The rails only lifted the hitch about 1 3/4”. The beauty of it is I can remove everything and cover the holes in the bed. Click image for larger version
