11,500 lbs for a 6.2 F250......no sweat!!!

Largest trailer i've hauled with the 6.2 so far weighing in at 11,500lbs empty. It performed great and i felt i had plenty of power left!! Super happy with this truck so far (first time Ford owner)
I snapped a pic before leaving the campground: (5th wheel is for sale BTW)

I'm loving my 6.2 (first time ford owner as well). I haul a 3000Lbs kit in the box for work all the time and it hardly feels like it's there.

Subtle - huh....

I've had the 93 t/p on for a couple of weeks now & it generally wakes the 6.2 up a lot!

I tow a 36' fiver that scales in at 13,600 lbs. No problem, especially with the 4.30s and Mikes tune.
