Aside from the bad weld potential...the engineer at Ford told me the extensions create a lever arm effect that dynamically puts a LOT more load on the toungue than the chassis is designed other words...500 lbs 4 feet further out from the rear wheels is a LOT more weight when in motion...and might damage the frame or cause handling any case...any problems would not be coverered under the warranty.

We did all the products to carry our Spyder RT. hydra lift told us it would not sell it to us due to the F53 chassis cracking due to stress on frame. Another manufacturer told us the same news again. There was one that told us not to hang a spyder off the back RV not heavy enough for weight hanging on rear end of RV. Said if we had an diesel they would allow the purchase and install. We ended up having a custom enclosed
trailer built for the spyder
