I looking at upgrading to TV to F150 and new Toy Hauler this spring.
The web site says that F150 have a 3000 pound payload and the 5er I looking at had 9000 dry pound pin weight with CCC of 6500lbs. So a few upgrades are required.
I going to put helper springs on it and that adds 1000 lbs of pay load so that is 4,000 payload
I going add Air bags and box says 5000lbs so now I'm at payload of 9,000 lbs
I going to put Rancho Adjustable shocks on the give another 1000lbs so 10,000 Payload
I give another 1000lbs just because the Ford underrates their Eco Boost and get a tune which will give it 1000 lbs of torque.
My buddy and dealer told me I would fine but if was unhappy he knew where there is a wreck Ford duel wheel and we swap the rear end since just bolts in then the sky is the limit. Plus I can tow in 80 mile cross winds.
Since I have 5000lbs air bags I should be able to 5000lbs of air in them to get the truck level
Here is the picture of 5er I 'm looking at.
