Purchased a 2012 F150, with EcoBost,3:15 axle a month ago.

Dealer installed:
Towing Mirrors
7 Pin plug
Hitch

Truck does not have the special rad or transmission cooling.

At the discussion before the sale I was reviewing with the dealership owner how big a trailer we could pull with the truck. He checked and said 3:15 axle ratio there fore we could pull 8,600 pounds. Most of the trailers I was looking at were max 7,600 GVW.

We went ahead and have made a down payment on a trailer that weighs 6,200 with a max GVWR of 7,600.

So all should be good..... BUT
when looking at the hitch today I discovered it's max rating is 5,000 pounds.

I am hoping this is a little problem - that they just need to install a different hitch.

Comments?
:confused: :mad:

Welcome to the forum!

The hitch they attached is closer to a Class III and you need a Class IV so I would revisit that with the dealer.
