Just be aware that all that fancy bling will lower payload capacity.
It'll be fine for towing the A-frame but if you go larger in the future, you may be "Limited".
See if you can post a pic of the Tires and Loading sticker from the driver's door.
I've seen Limited models with payloads if only 800lbs.

If that's what new trucks are costing these days, I'm for sure keeping what I have now.
She's pretty, but not $75K pretty.

I'm not an expert. But I play one on the internet.

I wonít lie I liked my 2014 Platinum when I had her. Nice didnít didnít describe it, got great deal bought a 62k truck for 33 used less than 3k on the odometer and previous owner installed leveling kit. Nicest vehicle I ever owned. Great truck but not only do I love both my tradesman, 1500 and 3500 I ENJOY them. Now I park where I want, we can eat in them., the four legged children are allowed in them. More importantly I use them as a truck. The 1500 isnít a 4x4 like the Ford but it sees more dirt roads fishing poles and hunting rifles, construction materials than the Ford ever did.
Again nothing against nice trucks, I do miss some of the features but it was soo nice I didnít want to use it as a truck and was more concerned about keeping it nice I wasnít able to enjoy.

Very nice truck though
