maybe for the same reason 90% of your posts are anti big truck It's just natural we are all going to defend our own setup.

I just sold my 2016 F250. It was ordered same as my 2016 F350. The only difference is the 350 has the 11,500 gvwr package and it does have an additional spring. The 11,500 also brought 3.55 rear instead of 3.31 and 20" tires instead of 18". Payload increased was the only difference.

Doesn't p--- me off, but the whole idea of this forum is to help the OP with suggestions for his 1/2T, not to tell him how great your 3/4T, 1T or Mack truck would do. He wants help with a 1/2T.

OK, it was fun for a while but I.m tired of stirring the pot. Tow with whatever you have and do the best you can wit it. There is no right answer foe everyone. Give it a rest.

Nope. Someone here would tell you that you need to go bigger, cause they had a friend of a friend, who had a cousin who had a friend break the axle trying to pull Trump Towers.

Hey Captain.
I have the same upgrade coming next week. Ford builds great truck and Dodge does too.


I suggested some things as a former half ton owner earlier, I also owned a Titan and know how soft they are in the backend.

All the best to the OP to find the right solution for him within his budget.

They do. If you order the Camper Package in the F 250 you get the extra spring but they are a different rate between 250 and 350. I just bought a FX 4 F350 that has extra heavy spring in the front with a snow plow package and the back too.
