tow rating

Is there anywhere online I can find the tow rating for my truck? Or does anyone know what it is

2000 F-150 xlt reg cab short box 4x4 4.6L V8 and assuming there is no tow package on it due to the lack of receiver.

Not sure of the exact figure, but a reg cab shortbox 4x4 would be get the lowest rating of all models that year. Have you checked on the door sticker what your GVWR is?

Better check your owners manual because I think with 308 gears and 4.2
they don't recommend towing at all :icon_sad:
