I'll be shocked if it doesn't get pulled over in BC due to their normally strict enforcement on towing TT's and 5'ers

I should note that Ford doesn't even offer the option of a Kingpin or Goose neck in the F150 series; you need at least a 3/4 or 1 ton and then you need to have the 8' box to get that option (at least from Ford) I've seen many 5'ers being towed with 6.5' boxes
I initially missed where he said he had the Ford max tow and max load packages; sorry. I looked at the wrong post when replying and the thread has so many people talking about so many different trucks I got confused.
This is one of the problems when someone hijacks a thread from the OP.
