I've towed my 5500lb loaded snowmobile trailer with my 2011 supercrew with no problems. Next week, I'm towing my '56 down to the F 100 Supernationals in Tennesee then up to Maine. Should be around 2500 miles. I just installed a Timbren SES kit to help reduce the suspension sag. It only took 10 minutes to install them, so when I'm done towing for the week, I'll put the stock bumpstops back on. The car will be towed to a few shows this summer also.
With a 6,000lb tow limit...not much, it could handle my old (now sold) 14' open car trailer with a small coupe on it but thats about it. One thing you have to keep in mind is that the suspension is vastly diffrent from a Raptor and a regular F150, regular F150s can tow about 9-12k (used it to tow my 24' enclosed for a seasson, now have an older 250) and raptors are limited to 6k and imho thats pushing it. I hate to say it but raptors are your play tow and maybe haul a snowmobile or atv (or 2 bikes) but for any real hauling get either a regular F150 or bigger.
