I agree, when I first bought mine I knew nothing about truck weights, payload, tongue weight, trailer weight, CCC etc etc, I bought the Ford F150 as the Toyota dealership would not serve me the day we went, I guess it was the track pants on a Saturday, and Ford was the dealer who had 0% financing out of the big three. Now it is six years later and I know better, don't push the limits get a 3/4 or 1 ton and tow in safety.
