2006 F150, Super Cab, 4x4, 5.4 L engine, automatic tranny, 3.73 gears........got it as a bargain with the big rebates in Nov. 2006, after the new 07s were already out.
Speaking of bargains, I saw a new Dodge 2500, super cab, Cummins diesel, nicely decked out for $32k this morning at a local showroom.....that puppy has $45k on the sticker. But, final assembly was done in Mexico !!! When I was shopping for trucks in 2006, the Chevrolet regular cabs were assembled in Mexico, as well as the 5.7 L Dodge Hemi engine. Maybe it is just me, but I want to support the american auto worker. I think both Toyota and Nissan now have truck plants in the good ol' USA, so why can't an American Company take a hint and stay within our borders.....and they wonder why they are going bankrupt???
I will now step off of my soapbox.
We tow a 2008 Surveyor 263, weighing in at ~5300 lbs. ready for camping. Haven't towed this unit much, as we just got it in September. Still trying to tweak the Reese Straight Line WDH system for maximum function. Even though the truck is rated to tow 9300 lbs and it tows the Surveyor just fine, I don't care what others say, I can still tell that puppy is back there.
