What's in a Ford HD Tow Pak?
New members, new TT'ers, lots of questions. There seems to be extreme knowledge and experience on this forum, any help greatly appreciated.
08 Rockwood 8315 - 33'
Dry Weight - 5847
GVWR - 7850
Equal-i-zer WDH w/Prodigy brake controller
07 Expedition EL 4x4 5.4L w/ 6 speed OD Auto
No HD tow pak, but came with Class III and HD tranny cooler (5 fin - confirmed at dealership)
The difference in capacity from tow kit to no tow kit goes from:
Max trailer weight - 8750 to 6000
GCWR - 15000 to 12400
The only other things that the HD tow pak adds is add'l radiator capacity, 7 pin plug, Class IV hitch, and pre-wired harness for brake controller (as near as I can determine). I have been told at the dealership the rear suspension in the same. What would cause the huge difference in towing capacity?
