Why, huskie, are you avoiding telling us your max trailer weight and payload?

6k dry for half tons. That truck has plenty of power, but GVRW and rear axle ratings will be over at 7k+ pounds. Also, those that have towed with half tons at 7k dry (8-9k loaded) tend to comment on stability and comfort level of towing at highway speeds.

If you want a 7-9k dry TT, get a 3/4 ton. Any 2011+ will do. If you find something in the 6k dry range, then I recommend the 2017+ F-150 with 10spd trans.

With the towing package (HD/ 53A) 9,000# GVWR trailer is a reasonable pull with data we have. IOW, 7-7,500# dry. There are several towing with the 2.7EB at 7,000#.
