Unhappy 1992 F350 Supercab 2wd 7.3 towing capacity?

Hey guys, I hate to post a generic topic like this but I simply can't find a solid answer. I have a 1992 F-350 2wd SuperCab dually, new 7.3 diesel, 5-speed with
4.10 gears. I need to know the towing capacity (ie. gooseneck/tag-along). I don't know the weight of the truck and therefore I'm not sure how much I'm supposed to be able to haul. If anyone has a booklet from '92 that would be great. Thanks, Jacob

PS I'm looking at getting those fancy air bags so I can compete with Dave S.

This is right from the Ford Recreational vehicle and trailer towing guide 1992-3....

The GCWR of the Fseries trucks towing a frame hitched trailer.

F series with 7.3 and automatic is:
355....12000lbs
410....17000lbs


F series with 7.3 and manual is:
355....12000lbs
410....14000lbs


The CGWR of the Fseries trucks towing a Fifth wheel trailer.

F series with 7.3 automatic is:
355....12000lbs
410....17000lbs
513....18000lbs

Fseries with 7.3 and manual is:
355....12000lbs
410....14000lbs
513....17000lbs


As you can see trans makes a difference, these numbers were considered low at the time our trucks were sold new. I think Ford was just doing CYA.....

Darrell,
What RPM are you running at what speed with what size tires and which tranny do you have?


2030 RPM
60 MPH
235/85-16 tires
ZF 5

As an example would work out to 4.10 gears
