What are the specs? Rear end? Cab size? Wheelbase length?

Pros- going to be addicted to the massive TQ
con- you will forget you have a 5200lbs boat behind you as the EcoBeast surges up the hill past the speed limit lol
pro- you get to pull a bigger boat than your friend
con- you will have wait at the boat launch for your buddy as he is still working his way up the last hill

lol

no really issues with the truck bro! Congrats and welcome... Some folks have had the rare issues with condensation build up in the intake causing shuttering at certain speeds this is due to high humidity and a over effective intercooler. Again rare situation and if you haven't felt it (pretty pronounced shutter) doubt you have the issue. Not to worry as ford has addressed it and is ensuring trucks that are affected are fixed. It's a solid truck with a overbuilt motor that gets betters as it ages.

Welcome!

I expect you will be trouble free! These are great trucks with the EcoBeast and they love to tow!
I bought mine for the main purpose of towing and could not be happier!
