Current brochure states that it comes with a 10,000 # hitch. There are a lot of things to consider when towing however...so you should check everything out with a towing calculator or similar.

10k is no worries on a Force HD (33k GVWR 54k combined). Force is a 28k rated chassis, 33 Combined. You need to subtract loaded weight from the combined weight to find towing capacity. (then of course worry about tongue weight adding to the GVWR), but that's the simple math.

We have been towing around 5,000 to 7,000 with the normal Force. I dont like math, so we hooked up and tried it.

Same here. We tow 8500 with ease, just looking for a real top limit. Thanks for the responses.

Easiest way to find out is to hook up load up and go to a CAT scale and get weighed.

If you're under 33k you're good

It's got a 10k hitch, but just be aware that you'll have to cut into your CCC (cargo carrying capacity to use all 10k).

28k GVWR
33k GCWR

Means you need to be 5k under GVWR to use all 10k. Not sure what the dry weight is, but that'd tell you how much stuff you can carry. Need to balance CCC and GCWR.
