    "Edd, I don't know, it used to be there.
    Here is what I do know: if you IM me your email address, I can send you the document. I have a lot more docs also for 2012 F-150's, including one with very detailed specifications. I can include a few more good documents with the ordering guide if you are interested. Let me know!"

    Thanks! My email address is xxx. Anything you have that can be helpful for picking out my F150 would be most appreciated.

    A few months ago you posted the correct procedure for weighing a truck with trailer at a certified scales measuring front axle, rear axle, and trailer axle weights in a 1-3 step process from which one could compute proper loading of the vehicle. I just returned from our maiden voyage in our new fifth wheel, got the weights from the scales but want to make sure I'm interpreting the data correctly before posting our trip. On a preliminary basis everything looks good, front/rear axles and GCVW but didn't record your procedure as I intended so I may be missing something. Thanks, Steve

    Do you happen to have a 'dry weight' for your truck? Not sure if it's on the door jamb or in the manual. I found a pretty cool trailer/truck tow weight spreadsheet that shows if you will be overweight on any part of the setup. But it needs the dry weight of the TV. Thanks

    I am looking to order a truck almost identical to yours. Just wondering if you're still happy with your new truck and engine choice. Any engine issues?

    I've seen you state that the ride is stiffer than a normal F-150. My only comparison is between an F-150 Max tow 145 WB and an F-250. How would you say it compares?

    The only thing I don't like about the XLT is the console and door arm rests. To me, they are quite hard compared to and FX4 and the two cars we currently have. But I just can't see spending another $3k for a Lariat, just for arm rests.

    What did you end up with for running boards/steps?

    Thanks for your help,
