11 Ecoboost regular 4x4
Just replaced the drop in K&N filter with the Arrid cold air intake system. Increased fuel economy by 2 liters per 100 kms both highway and city so far. Boosted HP as well

Have been towing my 28' V-Cross with a 07 F150 5.4 and it towed it very well. Just upgraded to a 2012 F150 ecoboost. Have not towed with it yet. Getting my 1000 mile break in period in. Can't wait to pull with it. Have heard a lot of good things about it.

Towing the new 29bhxl with my 05 Screw stock with max tow 3.73 rear 5.4 engine. Compared to the trail lite that was half the weight, Transmission temp and fuel seems about the same. We are traveling from Chicago to DC in a few weeks and I have no worries about the truck.

I tow a 27ft Wildwood fifth wheel with a 2006 F-150. It has a bigger differential or something that makes it tow more weight. Otherwise everything is the same. We do okay except when we have to go a high mountain in a hurry. Then, it strains and slows down to about 40 mph. Total weight of the rig is about 8,000 lbs.

Our 2011 F 150 is very well equipped (11,300 towing capacity). We have now towed our Sterling 30RL over 10,000 miles in all kinds of weather and terrain. The six speed transmission, sway control and 6.2 make all the difference. The 6.2 is also used in the F 250 and larger trucks. We keep the total loaded weight under 10,000 and enjoy the comfort of a less stiff ride of heavier trucks.
