6.2L Towing 10k Lbs Video Part2

Well loaded up again and went camping with the family. Thought i would share a few pics and a video of what the truck sounds like in cab with the Gibson exhaust.. Didnt see any other 2011 trucks in the camp ground. On the hwy I did get past by another 2011 6.2L F250 towing a bumper pull camper about 25-30 feet , he was hauling tail... and drove out of sight..

Noticed with 5ver hooked up that the overload springs were just slightly touching..

Sounds good, but it is a little quiet though. I notice that with the 4.30's you are turning 1900 rpms at 65 mph in 6th gear. I turn 1900 rpms at about 75 mph with the 3.73's in 6th. If I leave it in 5th by locking out 6th I'll turn about 1900-2000 rpms at 65 mph.

Good info i was hoping some one would note the difference RPMS between 3.73 and 4.30 for all of us 6.2L members..
The exhaust is just about right for my tastes when towing but your right it is nice and quiet vs other muffs..

fordmdb,

There is a delicate balance with exhaust though. I sucks when your exhaust it too loud. It will down right get on your nerves. So, even though it's a little quiet it still sounds good. I think the stock system sounds good so I know your's sounds even better. Now, that I think about it your system by be just right because how loud do you want the exhaust inside the cab?

I know I've stated this before, but I like that 5ver of yours. I hope to get one in the future.

You make some good points about noise in the cab stock is really good. The camera also does not do justice either on sound. Thanks for the comments on the 5ver. Its been a nice one for the family to grow into. We bought it in late 2006 as a 2007 model.

Hey Mike, Did you have the 5ver hitch installed or DIY? Are those "special" brakets I see on the frame rails? If so, how much were they? Also, have you seen/heard of anyone putting in a gooseneck ball in the 2011 and a gooseneck to 5ver adapter? I should be getting my F-250 Lariat Crew in Dec. and I will be getting a tuner but I am not familiar with the SCT. Is that a plug in,download and then remove from truck tool?I believe a tune will solve the tranny issues that are in the forums right now. I have an Evolution on my 08 F-150 and I like to be able to monitor stuff. However, I like that you own a 6.2 and use it the same way I will. I have a Wildcat 5ver bunkhouse with the single slide as well. Yes, I do tow it with the 1/2 ton and yes, that is why I am getting a new F-250 The tuner helps a ton when towing. Thanks for any info.

Hi
Hitch is a b&w B&W Custom Truck Beds, Inc.
I have the goose neck adapter on our Wildcat its worked great for me over last 2 years since i installed. I just got tired of the 5 ver hitch being in the way when not towing. The SCT works via obdii port reflash pcm and then unplug and store away. By the way got any pics of your Wildcat hooked up to the F150? Ford tough right
