Do you guys remember when the 3.5 first came to the f150? There were tons of inaccurate statements: the turbo would coke, it requires premium, oil flush every 30k, turbo engines don't last, head gaskets are going to be common replacements, etc.?
In all seriousness, just check the yellow sticker on the driver's door jamb for your specific truck's cargo capacity. (don't worry about towing capacity because the Ecoboost runs out of cargo capacity before that ECOBOOST motor runs out of pulling capacity)I just have a little fishing boat right now we’re looking at travel trailers I’m looking at a 30ft wildwood 28Dbud Sunday a neighbor is selling the gross is 8000 dry weight is 6800 I really want a 5th wheel but I need to get the wife acquainted to the lifestyle first by the way the truck is a 19 3.5 max tow screw
Yeah my payload is 1846 I’m looking to add RASIn all seriousness, just check the yellow sticker on the driver's door jamb for your specific truck's cargo capacity.

So, with that cargo capacity number, subtract the REAL tongue weight of your neighbors trailer and what's left is for passengers and cargo you throw in the truck.
Since you mentioned 8000lbs, you will be taxing some of the oem stuff on your truck likely. Shocks and tires, for example.
And then last but not least..... WDH setup is the REAL magic of getting a good towing experience. But that's another post. Lol

Ohh.. probably throw some air bags, helper springs, or timbrens...boom makeshift hdpp.I just don’t understand how the hdpp minus the longer frame is just leafs and a gear change and it can haul double my truck so because that yellow sticker is gospel I can’t swap out springs and shocks and achieve 40% more capacity
I was going to get 5100 and hd RAS which are suggested for anything over 7000lb and for the cost of 4 leaf springs I’m not ruling those out either, it’s just odd Ford put such a powerful little power plant in a truck unable to warrant its full potential as a motorOhh.. probably throw some air bags, helper springs, or timbrens...boom makeshift hdpp.
If you max out the payload, it doesn't feel taxed. At least when I've done it to the pound with some flooring.
