    If you donít have the hitch tag, at least contact an expert (absolutely not a Ram dealer) to verify your equipment is correct.

    Start with etrailer.com

    Hitch tags typically donít fall off and look like this.


    I donít mean to argue, but I want you to be safe. I went through the same ordeal on my 2018 F150 with a tow rating of well over 11000# yet came with a 5000# hitch. My dealer swore it was ok, but I understand how to read and research and it was NOT ok for a 7000#+ boat rig.

    Here was my solution and itís not ideal.

    Ford Factory hitch is integrated into the rear bumper assy and frame. So you canít remove the factory hitch. Curt made a 10000\1000# class 4 that bolts to the frame and fits around the inferior factory hitch.

    Ford finally fixed this for 2019.

    Yeah I've installed a couple and can't find it anywhere. Stupid I know. I can actually remove my hitch it looks like. Doesn't seem to be welded. Your not arguing your helping me I appreciate that a ton. My dad swears when he bought the truck they made sure it was an upgraded hitch but I bought the truck from him and wasn't there. On hold with etrailer now.

    This should tell you if you have an upgraded hitch. I looked on a couple forums and a class 4 was a $425 option in 2017.

    Ultimately itís trust but verify. Draw bar and ball also need to be rated higher too.

    Dude you are fucking awesome. What a cool website. Includes class IV receiving hitch. It's actually standard on my truck. For $57k it should be lol.

    Is there anyone running 2500' lbs on top of their factory ballast? If so what is the general distribution? I keep reading midship is the best place to add weight to these newer boats.

    Which WakeMakers bags are people using to upsize the rear factory bags?

    Any other surf additions recommended for the Makai?

    Doesn't really matter to me. Just would like general ideas of where y'all are placing additional weight for the Makai. In our current XLV we have 1200 of lead plus another 1000 of water under the seats, with a bit of that weight put up front in the bow.
