Overheard at the campground I'm at:

"The MaxTow gives you about another 500lbs payload."
"What's beefed up on the MaxTow to increase payload?"
"Heavier frame, heavier springs, heavier shocks, bigger brakes, beefier rear axle..."
"That's funny, this Ford doc says those are all identical."
Crickets chirping during an awkward moment of silence.....

I guess I'm just not a "Because the sticker says so" kind of guy and like to question things.

I have a King Ranch with a 7650 GVWR Package. It is a Canadian special, the spring codes and payload match a Max tow and HD package including 2300 lbs loading on the invoice / build sheet.

In my campground in middle Michigan today there are 4 fords to 1 GM / Dodge. Also most of the fords are 10 years old including 1985 f350 celebrating its 30 th birthday/original owner .
