It may not void the warranty but if the diff. or trans had issues it will give them a reason not to cover it.

If you want it to run like a horse you have to race it like a horse!
That's my motto!

I did not want to run into potential problems later, that is why I personally drove all over the place to get to 1000 before towing and followed the recommendation......Legally, I do not see how they can refuse to cover something listed in the warrany unless it is expressly stated in the owner's manual. They will lose in court.

We are camping this weekend so that is why I didn't want to pick it up now. Would rather be safe than sorry. Should be able to get a nice break in period before our next trip.

I've seen all the post about the power of the ecoboost but has anybody noticed a difference in towing with the built in sway control?

Easy, customer abuse/misuse. Happens all the time.

I pull a 3,000lb pop-up (Flagstaff 625D) and I don't even know it is back there, so I can't comment.

I've got the chevy 1/2 ton with built in sway control. Pulling 8k & no sway at all even with passing rigs but did add a single friction sway control for cheap added security.

X2! And you will be blown away with the difference from your 4-speed 5.4

Then I would say that your sway control has never kicked in. You would know it if it actually came into play.

If you trailer and hitch are set up right, you should never need this feature. Nice that it is there though just in case.
