First post on this site...

Pull our 22ft pontoon boat around with my 2014 Crew Cab FX4. 5.0/3.73s/HD payload package. Been averaging 12mpg. Not overly heavy but sits up like a brick in the wind.

Also tow a tandem Jetski Trailer and a 14ft enclosed cargo trailer.

I'm coming off a 2001 Crew Cab Lariat 5.4/3.55s, although a great truck...Doesn't compare to the 2014.

I made this video today of when I hauled in a load of scrap metal a couple weeks back I upload all sorts of Truck & Trailer related content on my YouTube Channel if any of you guys are interested in videos like that. I also upload How-To & Tutorial Videos as well as some Product Reviews too. I hope you find the video to be entertaining, and please feel free to let me know what you think

Over this past weekend I hauled my girlfriend's Father's Massey Ferguson farm tractor I've always wanted to haul a tractor with my truck and finally got the opportunity to do so just for some fun I made it into a YouTube video as well which is linked here.

Here are some pictures of the tractor hauling The Massey Ferguson with the Rototiller weighs in at 6500 lbs and my equipment trailer is another 2200 lbs so 8700 lbs total. My truck towed it better than I expected it to, especially on the long hill areas we intentionally went up and down on our drive. I could easily hold 80 km/hr up some very large & long up hills, the 4.30 gear ratio I have really helps me out that's for sure. My truck's a 2001 F350 4WD, Auto, 5.4 Triton 2V & 4.30 gear ratio.
My trailer is a 2008 Rainbow made Equipment/Car trailer with tandem 5200 lbs rated axles with brand new electric brakes & with a Pintle Hitch. This trailer has always towed beautifully and has hauled just about anything you can think of at some point

I now have a lower drop down hitch to level the trailer, that was my first haul with it and it was very unexpected to need to go to the vet. Trailer looks tiny compared to the truck.
