Track width is ~ 65" depending on tires/rims. The width of the body is about 74" excluding mirrors.

My guess is that the truck isn't where he is and he needs to tow it home.

Yeah, but it's more fun to ask smartass questions and pad my post count.

I tried to trailer a 1988 Bronco with 31 inch tires and factory aluminum wheels and the Broncos tires were too wide for the U haul tandem axle trailer. If the Bron had 235/75 x 15 tires-I think that it would have fit on the trailer.

I tried this back in 1998. It is possible that the U haul trailers are now different.

The best bet would be to actually measure the width of the outside sidewalls of the F150 and actually measure the width of the trailer-before moving day.
