Hey fellow Ford enthusiasts! Haven't been on in a while. Thank you to all who helped me with this question.
I understand more about towing now!
I was able to pull a very heavy fifth wheel into BC through some rather large grades that were nearly impassable with so much weight.
I, unfortunately, had a bad accident where the fifth wheel trailer jackknifed on some deep water in a thunderstorm at dusk 10 miles from my destination. Truck was driveable but was still considered a total wreck. It crushed the roof and blew out the back window. $16k in damage to fix.
So now I have a black 2004 5.4l Lariat with front leveller, pocket fender flares, dual exhaust, drop in K&N filter, aftermarket 20" black & silver accent rims by Monster with 34" tires.
Just got some new tow mirrors and a new raptor style grill and led headlight bulbs on the way. I also have some blacked led taillights and a pair of smoked dual halo headlights to install.
I got rid of the fifth wheel. I don't do any towing with this truck. Just tools and lumber in the bed.
Gotta do a bunch of stuff to get this truck legal to register for Ontario now that I'm back here. ( front strut, upper control arms/ball joints, power window switch, replace a window regulator, repair rusted out cab corners and rocker panels)
