My new to me 1977 f150 4x4 short bed

Hi everyone!
I am finally rejoining the ford family! I used to own a 1987 ford ranger but ended up selling it. Recently I have been considering buying a 2013 f250 but I ran across this 1977 f150 and decided it would be more fun to rebuild a truck than buy one that everyone else already has. :The details: 1977 ford f150 short bed 4x4, 4.10 gears,power steering, 300 I6, 4 speed. I do not know how many miles the truck has on it as it came with two gauge clusters both with different miles. The guy I am buying it from says that it has a new clutch and recent stock engine rebuild though he can not give me a milage for that as he hasnt had the truck for long himself. I know nothing of carbs really so I am going to learn alot here!
I have a few questions based on my research.

First how rare is this set up? I tell people about the truck and all they can say is that is really rare. Are there any specific production numbers for the short beds?

Second: It seems to have a factory tow set up mounted under the bumper which from my research shows only 1.8% of '77 150s had. Is it just a hitch or does it add extra springs in the rear? What would the tow capacities be around?

Third how do I post pictures?

Thanks yall. Hopefully I will learn alot here and from putting the truck back together as a DD.
