This is the first year that Ford permitted the HD payload and Max tow package in a Supercrew 4x2! The dealer did not think it was possible as they entered the different codes. Had I not done my homework and built the vehicle on-line, it would have been a no go.
One final question for now, as we are very close to signing. The truck will come with 18" rims. Should be thinking about 20" rims? With an extremely fully loaded trailer we will only be at about 65-75% of max payload.
Won't make any appreciable difference in towing stability?
