Nice truck, should serve you well. I'm not sure what year they dropped the tow mirrors being standard with the max tow pkg, or why. The 7-lug vrs 6-lug, not that big of deal, and maybe a good thing overall. Does it have LT E-rated tires?

Happy towing,

Jerry

It does have LT tires but I'm not sure what load rating they are. I pick it up tomorrow and have to give it a look.


The trailer tow mirrors were ordered separately on my 2016 model and still are on the 2021.

It comes with C rated tires. They are working well for me and are rated to carry as much as the axle is.

I am looking for one of those myself. My 2011 has pretty much the same configuration (6 speed not 10) but is currently has 205,000 miles on it. Some of the numbers may be different 10 years ago. I guess I will keep driving this one. I know that I do not need that much truck for my 3500 lb TT but I sometimes pull heavier stuff and like having the cushion.

Some good news for you is that it appears that Ford is making the max payload package much more available for 2021 models. Even throwing it in with certain other options. Hopefully we will see more on the lots.

Playing with the build and price worksheet for the Lariat trim I am finding the the max payload package (3.73 rear end) included with the max tow package when the 5.0 or hybrid engines are specified but not available with the standard 3.5 Ecoboost. We will have to see if this is still true as production increases.

One thing of interest is that Max Payload package seems to be available with the 5.5ft bed now.

Yes, I picked it up Monday and I've gotten the clear windows tinted and the tonneau cover will be here Friday. I also ordered towing mirrors that should be here next week.
