What are you towing 420AMP with?

We are looking at the specks for the 420AMP and wondering what people are towing with. We live in Colorado and will be doing mountain driving. We have a Ford 350 6.7 diesel SRW.
Thank you

We have the 417amp which is similar to the 420. I'll never go back to a normal truck..

I have a 2016 425 I use a 2014 F350 Crew Cab 4X4 dually 6.7 and I live in the mountains in VA and I haul two HD motorcycles and I have no problem pulling and stopping at all. Some of the camp grounds that we have gone to I would have a tough time getting anything any larger on a site at the beach or in the mountains on the east coast.

I pull my 417AMP with a Sierra 3500 Diesel (6.6L) SRW without an issue towing, slowing, or accelerating (DRW would be nice, but in the cards at this time).

The 420 is like my Vengeance's cousin. But your 420 has a much better pin weight as mine is just over 3000 lbs.. But I also have an F350 SRW and it does a fine job.

Almost 1200 miles towing so far this year and no problems at all. Headed down to Myrtle Beach next month and Disneyworld in December.

I would want a dually in the mountains myself. But you can do it with a SRW if you want.

you probably wont die with a SRW, but a DRW would definitely be ideal! LOL

pretty much any half ways modern 1ton+ diesel pickup is going to pull it just fine, though im with b370, a semi is definitely the 'best' option in terms of power, braking and stability and at the end of the day, similar fuel economy to a pickup depending on the truck, likely even better economy than a pickup

The 2016 Super Duty specs would suggest to me that u would be best off not doing it.

You know that towing capacity is for bumper pull not 5th wheel or goose neck. 5th wheel is 26,500 and goose neck is 31,000. Conventional which is bumper pull is 19,000.
