What do you get for mileage? I've been looking at some 6.7 however we usually only pull 20-100 miles when we go camping, my ecoboost has the power to pull just not the chassis. Usually around 70mph it starts to sway. My mileage averages 5-6.5

I can get almost 10 if I keep it around 70. It will tow it faster but mileage suffers. The 6.7 is a beast while being very comfortable. I drove straight from Taylor park colorado to Granbury texas last summer coming home and had zero fatigue. Just an excellent truck for towing.

Are you guys running any kind of anti sway? Have you ever figured out your loaded tongue weight. I run two anti sway friction bars on my 30WR. My tongue weight runs about 1350lbs no sway but I don't tow over 65...

Modmania are you towing a 30wr wrs with a half ton?

I am running a 14k equilizer hitch! I also have 85 gallon extra tank in the bed of truck cause I travel so much in the winter towing sleds.

I am pulling my wrs 30 with a crew cab short box 1/2 ton with air bags.

Thats pretty impessive I never would have thought a half ton could tow that. I tow a 30wr with a older Super Duty 7.3 Diesel. My 30wr weighs in about 11,500 to 12,200 loaded with tounge weight about 1350lbs. The hitch on the truck it was rated at only 1000lbs tounge weight and 10000 gross. So I had to upgrade the hitch it'self. I upgraded to a 16000 lbs hitch 17000 wdh rated. I also run airbags. Have you ever weighed your truck and trailer loaded? Just curios to what your numbers are compared to mine.

With my rzr 800, full water, all bedding, fridge loaded etc I weighed in at 11900!! It's the limit for my truck! If I stay at 65-69 it pulls great but interstate speed it's white knuckle driving for sure and now I just take back roads when possible! When I was dealing in camper they said they have a lot of guys pulling with half tons, I was in question but trusted them! I wouldn't recommend it all.

Dang Mod I thought you had an 18 or 23 when you said a 1/2 ton! A 30wr with a half ton is a load.

I do have the older style chain link anti sway system and have been thinking about getting the newer style with the bar going to the little ball. If you don't get some weight on the ball it is almost undriveable. Do you think the newer style would make an appreciable difference?

Sorry this thread kinda got side tracked.

I'm not very familiar with the chain style. I can say that I pulled mine without the bars attached and 45 mph it was tough to handle
