As in an earlier post I would suggest that you check the VIN. My ecoboost has the larger mirrors, brake controller, 3.73 gears, LT tires and does NOT have the max trailer tow package.

Also look at the GVWR the max tow package truck will be in the 7700 or 7800 lb range. Also look for 7 lug wheels. This will have the highest axle ratings.

Not sure if this has changed for 2013 ..in 2012 ..you could order a F150 supercrew 6 1/2 box ...3.5 ecoboost...max tow pkg...and.. Heavy duty payload pkg...2 seperate things ...a 4x2 with a 3.73 limited axel would tow 11,300 lbs...with a payload capacity of something like 2,600 lbs...it would have 7 lug wheels and e-rated tires ..almost ordered one my self ...then found my 2012 F250 diesel instead for less money..the F150 would have been "new" ..but my F250 diesel only had 3,100 miles on it

Are you sure? I've never seen a Max Tow without the elephant ears. Regular mirrors can have the tow package and a controller. Are we talking 2 different things here?

Looking at Fords web site the max tow package has the large mirrors, electric brake controller and heavy rear bumper. Then they offer the max pay load that has the LT tires and 7 lug wheels, etc. To get the 11, 300 towing you need booth with the EcoBoost.

Isn't one obvious sign the transmission cooler mounted on the radiator? I'm thinking that's part of the max tow pkg.
