    Nope, itís a well known Ford issue. Truck can tow 13k but the hitch is only rated to 5k.

    I just didnít want to risk it with an 8000# rig

    So I added a 10k hitch. Shitty part is the stock hitch is integral to the bumper.

    Just not sure on owner liability if the hitch broke and owner was found to have overloaded the factory hitch. I canít afford paying for my wrecked boat when insurance is rejected.

    $150 10k hitch is WELL worth it. It masks well with a hitch plug and some dirt lol.

    The hitch is rated for more than 5k. Itís 5k weight carrying but it says 11,600 weight distributing. And the only truck that rated for 13k is the single cab 4x2.

    Boats are pulled at the weight carrying rating.

    You canít use a weight distributing hitch on a boat trailer as you canít back up with a WD hitch. WD hitches are used on travel trailers and construction trailers.

    I was in denial when I got my 2018, but the engineer in me took over.

    that 105k price is all the boxes checked. vette should be in the low80's once you check a few boxes. stang should be 80-90 for most models. if you could pick up a gt500 for msrp I bet you could flip it for a few bills as dealer markups will have most of them in triple numbers.

    3 years later when you are tired of either one I'll take the 'stang. resale on that model should pwn any corvette but the zr1.
    did try to find a 2020 vette outside but not a single one to be had. kinda disappointed that a new release like that wouldn't have had a few floating around but they must have all been inside.
