We can say anything we want to each other as long as we preface with "With all due respect." Right?

When I bought my Lacrosse I towed it with a 2010 F150 5.4 with a 3.73 axle that didn't have the max tow package. It rev'd high through the hills and I only got 7.5 mpg. The trailer would sway during high winds and through uneven parts of the highway. I could've bought a more expensive WDH other than the equalizer, but I probably would have spent more as I felt I was putting a strain on the transmission.

In addition I was over payload capacity and didn't feel comfortable putting my family in that tow situation. My TV is now a 2014 F250. I don't feel the trailer back there, have more power going through hills and up mountains, and my mpg is 9.5.
