Do I really need a HD truck? Yes

However I love how they titled it using the words "can tow so much"
90% of the time its never been about towing limitations.

And in the end, it's kind of a "DUH" thing. "For most things, you don't need a Super Duty". Yeah, but "if you are towing the big boy trailers and 5th wheels, you need the Super Duty". DUH! It all boils down to one thing...get the right tool for the job. Period.

Like for like, same trim level, same options, 6.2L vs 3.5L EB, the F-250 and F-150 are around $1,500 different from one another. In nearly every comparison I've seen, it's not apples and oranges. If you go to and build them out, being careful to equip the trucks the same, there isn't much difference at all.

Loved the part about hooking up a 1,600 lb pin from gooseneck that would overload the F-150, but not the F-250. True, as long as only one of those guys was in the cab! The other one is walking home.

I generally like FLT stuff, but they don't know the details very well. The number of times he highlighted the SD's FX4 package was embarrassing. It's literally a sticker, an "upgrade" from super crappy stock shocks to other crappy stock shocks, hill descent control (low speed maneuvering), and 2 skid plates for gas tank and txfr case. That's it. $90 skid plates, a $15 hill descent button, crap shocks, and a sticker ... for about $360. Ugh.

Modern F-150s, particularly the 3.5 EB, are absolute beasts.
