The real question has been, if you're within the rated towing specs of any truck, why not?

First off- everyone lies. I see it in my business everyday.
Auto manufacturers lie...every day.
They just can't wait to out do other manufacturers in spec ratings for their commercials. And RV dealers love them also- they can sell you a bigger trailer.
I've seen 4 runners towing 6k plus trailers. Is it within "spec"...maybe.
Is it prudent? With a coil and linked rear suspension and a light payload rating?
IMO- HELL NO.
That thing starts to swap in a panic swerve and you are done.
I have seen my fair share of trailers on their side.
Me- I prefer 2 finger driving rather than white knuckling it down the road to my vacation.
At least you have a leaf rear suspension- that helps.
What type of rear end does that F150 have- is it a 9 inch?
You need at least that.
Full floater preferred.
The go and stop of these newer trucks and trailers is by far better than the past. It's the weight, chassis, suspension flex, tire flex that can get you in trouble when weight starts to transfer laterally.
