    Default Tow Rig

    I will be picking up my *NEW* Tow Rig wednesday afternoon. Well it is *NEW* to me, 1997 F-150 5.4l V8 SuperCab XLT Shortbed 4X4. It already has the tow package and the electronic brake control. I just need to find a trailer............

    No kidding! I've been trying to sell my '02 F150 for 18 months!! There are so many nice trucks out there at good prices right now, it's crazy!

    Congrats on the truck!! You're gonna love that 5.4L! Probably get 10-12 MPG while towing, but it has enough power!

    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    Congrat's on the new ride, but for towing, IDK my friend hates towing with his super crew 5.4L F150. It's a world of difference towing in the mountains than flat ground. He towed to Rauch Creek once/twice with it, now he borrows the father in laws 93 7.3L non-turbo to tow his YJ. Best I can say there is; don't get in a hurry and expect it to drink a lot of gas.
    Ditto on the Craigslist searching to find a trailer I have found several sweet deals on trailers there.

    If I could get my G/F to drive her XJ to work I would post up some picks. It is like a country song, I stay home and watch the kid she drives the truck!
