F 150 EB max tow info help

Looking at a 2011 Ford EB. Dealer state it is equipped with 3.73 axle and Tow Max.
How can I verify this? Is there a sticker on vehicle or do I need to decode the vin?
Thanks in advance

should be on the door jam on the drivers side. It will give you your max payload. I think max tow is right around 12k but the total payload rating will decide how much tongue weight you can handle

I don't know if this is included with Max tow but my 2012 came with the large towing mirrors. That's how I found mine on the lot. They are hard to find. At least where I live it was.

If it is HD and has tow mirrors and brake controller, it has max tow.

HD will have 7 lug wheels and 17 inch tires.

F 150 EB max tow info help

http://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/vin-decoder/

This should give you the rear end info. If it has the 3.73, the brake controller and the tow mirrors you have the MaxTow package. If it has the 7 lug wheels it has the HD payload package. Sounds like the one you are looking at has MaxTow, no HD Payload

The MaxTow will have the large tow mirrors- but they could have been added. GVWR sticker on door jamb will be 7650 or 7700 rather than 7200. The HD payload will have the tow mirrors AND 7 lug wheels. If an HD, GVWR will be 8200.

Edit: Just realized FX2 said pretty much the same thing. I concur- sounds like Max Two non HD Payload.

Max-tow does not come with 10 ply tires

I just assumed as well if it had the max tow it would also have the max payload. Sounds like that isn't the case.

Is the 17" tire a good measure for the max payload. Cant tell the number of lug nuts on photos. Manufacturers sticker tells you tire size.
