This truck is the F150 7700 series. Basically a F250 in sheeps clothing. 5.4 V8, big tranny with extra cooling and 3:73 gears. It has been a great truck for as long as I have owned it.

Got air bags on it so I can balance out the load on the truck. Then I hook up the trailer and set the WD hitch. Tires are LT235/85R16 10 ply inflated to 85psi. Total package scaled out at 16,500#.

Pulled a steep mountain grade climbing from the valley floor to the high pines with no problems.

BTW I am a Master Rated ASE certified mechanic and keep my small fleet in tip top shape.

Woops - big typo mistake. Weighed it out at around 12,500# still plenty heavy but I can go up to 14,000# with this setup.
