2017 Super Duty Tows…Everything!

By now, you might think that every 2017 Super Duty out there is just a glorified mall crawler. Think again!

It’s no secret that the all-new 2017 Super Duty is one heck of a hauler. When introduced, it set a new standard in the heavy duty truck market in regards to towing and payload capacity. And, as we recently learned, Ford has upped the ante even further for 2018. But since your news feed tends to be filled more with flashy, bagged 2017 Super Duty examples than ones actually working, you might be wondering if anyone actually uses that world-class towing capacity.

Well, wonder no more! Because when it comes to the folks here at Ford Truck Enthusiasts, we use our trucks the way the Blue Oval intended. For proof, look no further than this thread, started by FTE member Super-Truck. It all started with a simple request for pictures of 2017 Super Duty trucks towing stuff. But in just a few days, it’s exploded into pages upon pages of hard-working pickups.

“Thought it would be neat to see what everyone drags with their new SD. Here’s a few that I have off-hand. Please excuse everything being so dirty.”

Nothing like watching a 2017 Super Duty put in work on the farm to kick things off! But more owners, like JHatley7, pull conventional loads with their trucks. Like giant campers and boats.

Then again, how about some livestock? Rob81 uses his heavy duty truck to haul around some of his hay-eating friends!

And just because the new Super Duty is a thoroughly modern truck doesn’t mean you can’t tow a classic camper behind it. Just feast your eyes on srkr‘s beautiful Airstream trailer. Not to mention his beautiful truck!

Obviously, a lot of FTE members use their Super Duty more for work than play. That includes bscooter99, whose truck played a big role in helping clean up the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey’s destructive path.

Then there’s ElectronPlumber, who obviously makes good use of his truck’s towing and hauling capacity. What better truck is there when you need something to support your livelihood?

Or, if you’re like AMXDREAMER, you use your truck to haul around your precious toys. Namely a classic muscle car! We’ll let you guess what kind of car it is, but we’ll just say it isn’t a Ford. But hey, we’ll let it slide. This time!

Then again, we’d have to say that the appropriately named lotsofords has the right idea. He uses his Ford to tow his other Fords, which includes this sweet Cobra.

Whether you use your 2017 Super Duty for work or for play, the fact that you use it is what’s important. And judging by this thread, that’s exactly what the fine folks at FTE do! But we want to know, what do you tow with your shiny new Super Duty? Head over here and post some photographic evidence of your beefy hauler doing what it was built to do!
