Well, Friday I did 940 miles without a trailer. Today I did the pre delivery inspection and finalized the paperwork. Then I hit the road. Today I did 655 miles back the other way headed home.
My truck is a Ford F-150 FX2 EcoBoost. However it is not the cool one with the max tow or anything like that. I have a super high highway 3.15 rearend. However this truck does have a trailer brake controller installed as an option as well as the transmission cooler. So, my max tow is 8400 lbs. my TT empty is approx 7300lbs. So I'm pretty close.
I studied the transmission ratios and compared final drive ratios in 5th and 6th gear and compared it to the final ratio of the 3.73 rear end. My truck in 5th gear (with 6th locked out with the manual shifter) is near the same ratio. I don't plan on towing this rig really anywhere else that a significant distance although it doesn't tow poorly at all. I consistently ran 65 mph without issue. It was kind of windy today so I didn't want to push 70 mph with the side wind gusts I was getting.
I'm running Husky's version of the Equalizer 4point WDH.
Anyway, here are the obligatory pictures.
