I dont know what the axle ratio is so I can find out from Ford what that is. Even if it is a 3.31 how does that factor in, as I have towed popups before with no issue?
Popups vs TT are 2 different animals. There is umpteen times more frontal area on a TT. Example on weight vs frontal area... One dude I know in the CRD forums tows 7000lb generators and gets better fuel economy than me towing a 4500lb TT.
The question that I would be asking, me being more open minded is, between the Std and Hd, are the hitches different (besides the sticker) and is the suspension different. If they are the same, I'd go for it. Again, this is coming from someone who use to tow 42ft race car trailers with my 91 F350 and never went over a scale to see how overloaded I was.
