WOW! That's more than 3x your F150's payload.
Congrats and you'll still have plenty to go to a 5th Wheel if you want.
Please post pics of your new truck.

Now you are talking a TOW vehicle! My 2019 F350 dually is supposed to be able to pull 29,000#. A 5er that heavy would have a PW of about 5800#. My yellow sticker says 5598#. My actual PW is close to 3400#, published PW is 2800#. The only published number worth the ink is the GVWR.

Hey Jarhead. Congrats on the new truck. Enjoy!

Where were you in October 1983?
