    You can't go by Ford's numbers. If you have already heard this rant, forgive me. Follow lawnkid's link, and that will tell you depending on SRW or DRW and tranny, and axle ratio. What you can actually pull is more based on the GCWR of the vehicle and the GVWR of your vehicle. As long as you don't exceed either of those while towing you are good according to Ford.

    Need a CDL to tow that much weight.

    Any trailer that has a GVWR of 10,000# or more, you need a CDL.

    Care to argue. go to DOT and find out for your self.


    14,500# LMAO better have trailer brakes and hope you don't blow your tranny out.

    That's hard pressed LMAO 14,500# LMAO

    Need an F550 for that......

    Sorry my real 26,000 gcvw trucks don't like that much weight behind them
