What are ya'll towing?

Thought since the weather is finally turning around, would be a good time to see what everyone hooks up to their fords.

I haul a few things around the farm, but mainly my little 6' x 10' enclosed trailer. Hauls a lot of water (500 gallon tank strapped in), used it to help a lot of friends move, gets used a lot in hunting season (built racks for decoys, and have plastic slip in floor liner for deer season). Also handy for hauling around the quads and sleds.

So you guys get some pics of your trailers up!

I haven't done much towing with mine yet but I towed my friend's travel trailer from Thorold to Cayuga & back. I am looking at getting some type of utility trailer to haul stuff when I need more capacity than just the truck bed.

Towed this on the bumper with a half bed of firewood, my camping gear and a fully loaded trailer. At the time the gears were still the stock 3.08 open diff. I even got to try out my tow tune. Truck pulled it like it was barely even there.



This is mostly what I use the hitch for nowadays.



Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

Hitch bike rack looks good, seen a few guys that have a dirtbike rack that way.

Lumberjack, cant really blame you for not wanting to tow from the bumper. i got both my trucks with the factory tow package, but i know that new recievers aren't too expensive, at least out here. Might be because out west there are a lot more guys towing?

v8ranger, good idea to jack it back up! a truck is only a towing truck if you can go over a speedbump without the pavement ticklin' your nuts!!
